Amnesty International Film Festival in Pgh

The Amnesty International Film Festival kicks off tomorrow night here in Our Grey City. (Note the witty takeoff on "Our Fair City," which refers to any Fair City that you choose). Michele forwards the following email:
From September 9 through 17, 2005 the Amnesty International Film Festival will screen a mix of documentaries, shorts and a feature film that focus on the world's most urgent human rights challenges. All of the films this year are Pittsburgh premieres and four are making their East Coast debuts. The Festival will take place at three venues: Pittsburgh Filmmakers Melwood Screening Room, Carnegie Mellon University's Porter Hall 100 and the University of Pittsburgh's David Lawrence Hall 120. Tickets for the Festival will be available at the Melwood Screening Room 30 minutes prior to each evening's screening. General admission is $7.00, $5.00 for students with a valid I.D. Campus screenings are free. For more information and a specific program and film schedule go to
