About Us

Welcome to the home of CMU Film Club!

The CMU Filmmaking Club, founded in 1994, is a student organization of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. The mission of the organization is to produce and promote student filmmaking, both at Carnegie Mellon and in the greater community. Each semester, the club generally produces at least one short film or video project, which utilizes the technical and creative abilities of its members. There is also usually at least one “improv” shoot at the beginning of each semester, where small teams work to create a short narrative video in a few hours; this activity allows new members to get acquainted with the basics of our equipment and is always a lot of fun.

A Quick Explanation: Film Club vs. Hub (vs. CMU TV)

We are Film Club/ Hub! Film Club serves as a facet of Film Hub: Those who wish to learn more about making movies, holding a camera, lighting a scene, recording sounds, and editing movies are part of Film Club. These members tend to come to the weekly meetings and have paid their $20 dues to the club. Film Hub members are students who have less time to come to every weekly meeting and maybe aren’t as interested in getting hands dirty on set. Film Hub members are invited to events such as movie watching parties, writing reviews, and being involved in the film community here at Carnegie Mellon without as large a time commitment as Film Clubbers.

And now a note about CMU TV: We share an office on Margaret Morrison street with our friends from CMU TV. However, we are unaffiliated. The main difference between our two clubs is that CMU TV is purely about documenting full events such as concerts or meetings, and Film Club makes films, shorts, promos, music videos, etc.
