A recent award-winning film that was written and directed by a Western Pennsylvania native will be the feature film at a premiere screening on Sunday in Pittsburgh.
The movie, “Staring at the Sun,” will be featured at the Regent Square Theatre on Braddock Avenue. Recently, the film has won 41 awards at various film festivals across the country and overseas. It was written and directed by Harry Greenberger, who is from Butler County.
“Staring at the Sun” is Greenberger’s first feature film, so it obviously means a lot to him. Whilst the film has already gained multiple awards, the film is only just beginning to be screened. For a debut film, the filmmaker will put all of their focus into ensuring the film is ready to be viewed by large audiences. It’s believed that, before the screening, Greenberger was able to use a DCP editor to ensure all of the preshow ads would be relevant to the film. A lot of film creators seem to be making use of software that allows them to do that, apparently, it helps them to earn more of the profits. When all of their hard work has gone into the film, it’s only right that they should be financially rewarded for their efforts.
Following the success of his first film, he is currently working on his second feature called “Faraway Eyes.”
Sunday’s film screening is set for 8pm.
