March 25–April 24

Festival Description

Kofi Annan, the seventh Secretary-General of the United Nations, addressed the force of globalization in his quote, “It has been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing against the laws of gravity.”

On paper, “globalization” broadly defines the integration of regional economies, societies and cultures in a global network.  Trade, capital flows, migration and the growth of technology have expanded beyond their previous confines.  We are living in what has even been dubbed “The Era of Globalization,” but what are the ramifications of such developments? Is globalization a culprit or a cure to global issues?

In film, what does “globalization” mean?  This is the question Faces of Globalization poses through a presentation of contemporary documentaries and feature lengths from a wide range of authors and perspectives.  In order to humanize the debate, there must be a face to the issue.  In its fourth year, the Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival continues to put faces to its theme, authors on the scene and audience members in the dialogue.

Additionally, this year’s festival will host an International Short Film Competition to expose new faces and voices from around the world and to invite more audience participation.   

We look forward to seeing your face in the audience!
