Each year Women In Film and Media volunteer to produce a Public Service Announcement for a non-profit organization that helps women and children in the Pittsburgh area.
The 2015 PSA was shot in September for Pennsylvania Women Work’s program “Three Cups of Coffee.”
The PSA and a documentary on the production can be found on Pennsylvania Women Work’s website.
Hair Peace Charities had been selected by WIFM for its PSA, which was completed in 2012. Hair Peace provides financial support for women who suffer traumatic hair loss due to chemotherapy, and need counseling and assistance purchasing a wig. Professional mentors for the PSA included the award winning advertising agency, Brunner, Inc; Chelle Robinson (“Black Dahlia”, “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood”); John Rice (“Dumpster”; The Journey); and the late Amy Lamb (“One for the Money’, “Warrior”). Co-chairs for the PSA are Heidi Schlegel, Point Park University, and Jessica Pachuta, ‘Hear Me’ Project, Carnegie Mellon University.
All of Women in Film and Media’s PSA projects may be viewed in the PSA Archives. We encourage you to view our Public Service Announcements and other videos.
