Thanks to all who helped make the 2018 Silk Screen Film Festival another incredible experience. Over the years, the festival has become known as a premier showcase for Asian culture, with a reputation that extends well beyond Pittsburgh.

The decision to suspend Silk Screen operations is part of a long-planned board decision due to financial challenges and the need to position the organization’s programming for the long term. With these financial challenges in mind, this week the Board voted to suspend operations of Silk Screen.

The Board is speaking with other community organizations to explore ways to keep the spirit of Silk Screen alive.

On behalf of the entire Board, we thank you for your support over the years. We hope that others will carry the Silk Screen tradition forward, and that you will remain active in their efforts.
