Any time the equipment office is closed, the library will also be closed.

The Pittsburgh Filmmakers Library supports the needs of the artist and the advancement of artistic excellence in the visual arts by making available materials in film, video, photography and digital media.

In addition to books, the library houses DVDs, multiple periodical titles, stock footage, royalty free music, sound effects and photographic collections.



We have 3 Apple iMac computers located in the library available for patron use. Patrons can use the computers for Internet browsing, research, and/or for checking email. Computer use is on a first-come, first-served basis. There is also an iPad available with which patrons can access many film, video, and photography related periodical subscriptions.

The library also has a color photocopier and a printer. Patrons may print or make photocopies at a cost of $.10 for B&W pages or $.25 for color.

In addition to the 3 iMacs, there is also one media viewing carrel in the library. It is equipped with a video monitor, headphones, a DVD player, and a VHS VCR. Patrons can view material from the library collection or bring in their own material.

The Library now offers a writing tutors program. Students are welcome to set up a free, private, appointment with a tutor who can provide one-on-one assistance with writing assignments and writing skills. To set up an appointment send an email to Sam pflib[a] and include "Writing Tutor" in the subject line. Let us know what times are good for you and we will contact you to set up a tutoring session.
