Pittsburgh named a top city for filmmakers to live and work (post-gazette.com)
Pittsburgh has seen a boom in movie and television production over the last decade, and now the city is getting national recognition.
MovieMaker magazine on Tuesday released its annual list of the best places to live and work for entertainment industry workers. The publication “focused on the art and craft of movies and cinematic TV” creates two lists, one for big cities like Boston and Washington, D.C., and another for small cities and towns.
The Steel City moved up this year from No. 4 to No. 3 on the second list, ahead of places like Tulsa, Okla., Savannah, Ga., and Providence, R.I. New Orleans ranked No. 1 and Santa Fe, N.M., No. 2 on the small cities list.
