ABOUT THE Festival

The CMU International Film Festival’s Short Film Competition (SFC) is an annual competition that aims to gather cinematic perspectives from around the world on a current social issue or idea. The SFC invites and encourages independent local filmmakers to submit a short film of their making that presents a unique vision, creates poignant conversation, and passionately and creatively captures the festival’s FACES OF HOME theme.
