Pittsburgh Filmmakers / Pittsburgh Center for the Arts will not offer a full course schedule for Fall 2018 while we undertake a major organizational restructuring. We hope to relaunch our classes in the Spring/Summer 2019.

PF/PCA has and will always be committed to artists and the advancement of artistic excellence in the Pittsburgh community. As the world of visual arts is evolving, we recognize the needs of our community have changed and we must change with it to continue to be relevant. Our goal is to continue to be a valuable resource for artists and a staple in the Pittsburgh arts community.
