The Pittsburgh Filmmakers Film Kitchen series continues to highlight regional, independently-made film and video this month with a special show by the micro-cinema group, Pittsburgh Extreme Radical Video (PERV).
Founded in 2012 by Kyle Vannoy, Gena Salorino and Michael J. Maraden, PERV meets on the last Saturday of every month to showcase locally-made short films and videos, all of which run under ten minutes. On May 14th, Film Kitchen hosts a retrospective of the group’s best works so far in the Melwood Screening Room. The event will feature selections from Scott Whiteman, Josh Rievel, Stu Steimer, Ty Tonelli and Chris Kibler, and Justin Crimone, as well as showings from Vannoy, Salorino and Maraden. Filmmakers Sarah Chamizo and Tim Israel will also present.
