FRIENDS OF THE FILM OFFICE (FOFO)

Want free passes to movie screenings, sneak previews of who is filming where and when, while also directly contributing to the active film industry in the Pittsburgh area? Did you know that since 1990, the film industry has generated nearly $2 billion in southwestern Pennsylvania?
