Pittsburgh Filmmakers' Equipment Office is the nerve center of our organization. Our artist members and students rely on the Equipment Office Staff for expertise and advice, guidance with computer software, and to borrow (and return!) any of the thousands of pieces of our equipment — still and motion cameras, lights, sound equipment, cables and anything else needed to make media art.

Pittsburgh Filmmakers' Equipment can be rented by students, members, and staff. Click here to see our membership levels and guidelines.
