3RFF: Brasslands (Opening Night) @ Melwood

Meet in lobby at 6:45, seating at 7 pm, film at 7:15.

**NOTE: the gala is after the film, around 9:30.**

Serbia/Montenegro/USA | Meerkat Media Collective | 2013 | 88 min
It's so lively and infectious, you'll be dancing in your seat! With its heart-pumping blend of trumpets, drums and other brass instruments, Brasslands – directed by a 10-person collective of filmmakers – sets out to explore Balkan music as half a million people descend upon a tiny Serbian village for the 50th anniversary of the world's largest trumpet festival. The film not only captures this special music and its spirit, but also what music means to this region and how they see themselves in the world.
Ticket also includes admittance to the Opening Night Gala at Pittsburgh Filmmakers, 477 Melwood Ave. Pittsburgh PA, 15213.

    The film was very entertaining and well done! The icing on the cake was the dance party after the film with live music by Lungs Face Feet!!! All around a really fun opening night!

    If people would like to schedule a meetup for other opening night films, please set it up or suggest it. THIS meetup is for Brasslands at Melwood - I only mention this to avoid confusion. Thank you! :)

    Anyone interested in seeing A Perfect Man - the other film playing opening night at the Harris? A Perfect Man

    Acclaimed actor Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan, Wolverine, The Butler) plays a philandering husband who unknowingly falls back in love with his wife, played by Jeanne Tripplehorn (Big Love, Criminal Minds) when she pretends to be another woman. This off-beat romantic drama, set in Amsterdam, focuses on James, who is baffled by “what women want.” He finds the answers to his questions in an over-the-phone relationship with Nina. (You know James can't be all that bad, he has a cute dog.) But he's in for a big surprise when he finally meets up with Nina.

      FYI: the Gala is after the film and continues to allow for those at other theaters to travel to Melwood to attend; tickets to any of the opening night screenings includes entrance to the Gala at Melwood.

      Hi Cathy, I'm going to A Perfect Man. Then to the Gala afterwards - the Gala is for all theaters and shows opening night, starting at 9-ish to accommodate all. --Sue
