In this photo: Men's basketball takes on Vermont in the opening round of the National Invitation Tournament, ultimately winning 63-60 and advancing to the second round against the College of Charleston, where the team fell 64-56, finishing one of its most exciting seasons. This past weekend, women's basketball advanced to the quarterfinals of the Women's Basketball Invitational against Chicago State, but suffered a 68-50 loss, concluding the season at 21-12 overall, the second most wins in school history and just the second 20 win season at CSU.

With the 35th Cleveland International Film Festival's opening night tomorrow, we caught up with the fest's artistic director Bill Guentzler, BA '99, to find out a bit more about what it takes to host one of the city's biggest events. Read more here.
