Hotel, Maps, & Directions

This map below is of the Oakland area and shows the relationship between the hotel, The Pitt Alumni Hall (TH & Fri lectures), and the The University of Pittsburgh’s Frick Fine Arts Building (trade show, exhibitions, portfolio sharing, & HPI film screening). See the schedule for location information.


This years conference hotel is the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center (same hotel we’ve used in the past with a new name). The conference rate is $136 for 1-4 people (find a buddy and save!). Mention code F295 when you call. You will have better luck phoning the hotel directly than if you try using their national 800 reservation line. Make you reservation at: 1-412-682-6200

All workshops take place at Pittsburgh Filmmakers, 477 Mellwood Avenue, Pittsburgh PA 15213. The map below shows the location in relationship to the conference hotel. It’s about a half hour walk. The free hotel shuttle will also deliver you, but plan ahead with the hotel so they can schedule your trip.
