* "Crocodile in the Yangtze" -- Director Porter Erisman, who will attend, provides a front-row seat to the social, political and economic changes and conflicts that arose when the Internet brought China face to face with the West. 7 p.m. Friday, CMU University Center, McConomy Auditorium.

* "Suspiciously in Love" -- Farcical comedy of errors, from Polish director and writer Slawomir Krynski, about a couple looking for love online who pose as someone else and maintain their facade until their first date in real life -- when they each send an attractive replacement to act on their behalf. 5 p.m. Saturday, Melwood.

* "InContact" -- A love triangle unfolds through an online platform called "InContact," a hybrid of Facebook and reality TV, giving users a constant live video feed from their friends' computers.

* "Tahrir -- Liberation Square" -- Called a "must-see account of the Egyptian uprising," from Italian director Stefano Savona, who had gone to Cairo almost every year for two decades and never expected the revolutionary events of early 2011 he documented with a very small camera and sound recorder. 3 p.m. Sunday, Melwood.

* "Sushi: The Global Catch" -- A look at the tradition, growth and future of the simple, elegant food once sold by Tokyo street vendors but now in restaurants and supermarkets. The hunger for sushi has led to the depletion of apex predators in the ocean to such a degree that it might upset the ecological balance of the world's oceans, leading to a collapse of all fish species. 5:30 p.m. Sunday, CMU's McConomy Auditorium.
