What do people have to say?

"The Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival is my annual favorite, due to the excellence of the choices by its director, Jolanta Lion, who deserves an Oscar in general."

"The CMU IFF is a full-city experience: Catch films at the university as well as various theaters across the city, while stopping along the way to sample [Pittsburgh's] global cuisine. Experience what's up and coming in student short films and take your festival experience to the next level by participating in discussions with directors, artists, academics, and other industry professionals."
