Access Membership

Access Membership Type Cost Description
Individual $75/year Membership benefits for 1 adult
Family $150/year Associate Member benefits for 2 adults and all children under 18. Access benefits and voting privileges for 2 adults.

Access Members enjoy all of the same benefits as Associate Members, with the added benefit of access to PF/PCA's equipment and facilities. Access Members also play an important part in PF/PCA's governance with invitation and voting rights at our quarterly membersip meetings. The following is a list of Access Membership benefits:

  • Pay-as-you-go access to PF/PCA equipment (with test-out or approval by PF/PCA staff)
  • Artist Services (portfolio reviews, networking opportunities, conduit program)
  • One waived course fee per semester at Pittsburgh Filmmakers for anyone who has purchased an "Access Package".
  • Invitation to quarterly member meetings
  • The opportunity to become a voting member. Families purchasing an Access Membership may have two voting members.

Access Packages

To make the most of your membership, consider adding an Access Package to your Access Membership. Access packages will enable you to use PF/PCA equipment on a rent-free basis. Do you want to work across disciplines? Purchase a second access package of equal or lesser value to receive the second package at 1/2 price!
