We’re in the home stretch. Less than a month remains to push for improving our PA Film Tax Incentive Program, and we need you. We have two bills we would like to see passed: Senate Bill (SB) 1313, sponsored by Senator Wayne Fontana, which would recover millions in unused credits from previous years, and SB1035, sponsored by Senator Dominic Pileggi, to uncap the credits.

Here’s what you can do: 

A VERY SPECIAL WEEKEND: This is the weekend that Women In Film and Media Pittsburgh and Women in Film and Television International play host to the 2014 Women in Film and Television International Summit, bringing together local industry professionals, including members from more than 40 chapters worldwide for a film and television conference.

Hello, film and TV scriptwriters – the SAG Foundation would like to hear from you!

The SAG Foundation Salon presents staged readings of film and TV scripts, featuring a cast of SAG-AFTRA members.

They’re interested in well-written material that would appeal to a wide audience.

Writers MUST be members of one of the performing arts (SAG-AFTRA, AEA, etc.) or affiliated unions (DGA, WGA, etc.). If the work is a collaboration, then at least one of the writers must be a union member.
