About Sweded Film Festival:

Join us for the only festival of classic movies, re-made by amateurs who replace A-list stars and CGI with whatever is laying around their houses and a ton of creativity. It’s odd, unexpected, and a whole lot of fun.

There are just a few rules to a Sweded film. Keep it cheap, short, and out of control, but make it awesome.

Filmmakers can register now and submit their films by Nov. 22. Our panel of judges will choose winners for our cash prizes, and we’ll compile the best of the best Sweded submissions to be included in a feature-length compilation film.

About Row House Cinema:

Row House Cinema is an 84-seat single-screen theater in a historic row house in the heart of Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood. Our mission is to show awesome movies and to help build a stronger film community in Pittsburgh through our unique programming.

Row House opened in June of 2014 with a special screening of Pulp Fiction, and we have shown hundreds of new, old, popular, weird, amazing, and obscure movies since. The theater temporarily closed on March 18, 2020 due to the 2020 COVID crisis.

Quarantine Cat Film Festival is Row House Cinema’s first foray into filmmaking and national distribution.
