During a down year for decent movies, the Three Rivers Film Festival arrives just in time, packing Pittsburgh Filmmakers’ three theaters with challenging, interesting cinema from all over the world. The festival opens Friday and runs through Nov. 20, featuring films from as far away as Luxembourg (“Bride Flight”) and Peru (“Octubre”), and as close as Braddock with a night of influential local filmmaker Tony Buba’s movies.

It begins Friday night with “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” — the film adaption of the third book in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy that started with “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” — at the Regent Square Theater. Highlights include two performances of “The Phantom of the Opera” (1929), the silent horror classic with live musical accompaniment by the Bach Choir.

A performance by the Alloy Orchestra has become a Three Rivers Film Festival tradition. They will close the festival accompanying the science fiction classic “Metropolis” on Nov. 20.

Tickets for individual films are $9 unless otherwise indicated. A six-pack pass is $45, and comes with a T-shirt. A Silver Screenie pass, good for all events, is $100 before Friday, when it rises to $125.
