“The MFA program at the City College of New York is one of the most diverse and international film schools in the world, which makes Cityvisions a truly international film festival, showcasing innovative work by promising filmmakers from around the globe,” states MFA Program Co-Director Andrea Weiss.   This year, the 19 films being showcased represent work by directors from 10 different countries, including Cote d’Ivoire, Morocco, Guatemala and the Philippines.
