Interviews conducted with audience members during the January 30, 2009 Film Factory Panel Event; "Scripted Readings: Does The Story Work?" Audience members were asked their thoughts on the Film Factory and how the competition will impact the culture of filmmaking in the Southwestern Pennsylvania region. The Audience was also asked to comment on the process of Film Factory and how Film Factory is working to build and sustain a Filmmaking community in Pittsburgh.
Steeltown Film Factory (SFF) is a yearlong filmmaking competition, supported by a series of public workshops, panel discussions and staged readings, designed to engage aspiring filmmakers to create projects with Pittsburgh-inspired content. The competition will provide emerging talent with an opportunity to learn from internationally renowned film and television professionals about the entertainment industry. A successful SFF will lead to the training and employment of the local workforce, the incubation of talent and intellectual property, and the nurturing and development of future projects that can be spun off into commercially viable entities. These entities will create jobs, investment opportunities, and products that will be exported by our region. By bringing together local and expatriate resources in Southwestern Pennsylvania (SWPA), the SFF will help to transform this region's non-profit "Arts Sector" into a thriving "Entertainment Economy."
