WHAT DOES IDENTITY MEAN TO YOU?
For the first time in its 11 year history, the CMU International Film Festival (CMU IFF) will be partnering with local artist, entrepreneur, and former Pittsburgh Steelers running back, Baron Batch, to present the 2017 CMU IFF season’s theme: “Faces of Identity.”
With this artistic introduction to “Faces of Identity,” the CMU IFF encourages students to take a closer look at themselves, their campus, and what art can mean to them in today’s world.
