Engage!

Blog post by Haley Stearns, Film, Photography, and Visual Arts '15, Buffalo, New York

There’s no doubt that FLEFF has a lot to offer students. One of the main things that I have learned about the importance and impact that FLEFF has is its ability to stimulate conversation among festivalgoers and guests. This film festival opens up dialogues about different topics from all over the world.

What better way to get involved in a festival than to engage in meaningful conversations with the people around you? There are endless possibilities rooted in the prospect of dialogue. FLEFF explores topics of sustainability, health, war, technologies, culture, diversity, and much more. Some of these topics will be familiar or foreign to the audiences experiencing them. By engaging in conversation with the people around you, you grant yourself the opportunity to see things from a different perspective. The ability to spark a conversation allows you to meet new people, experience different viewpoints, and ultimately learn about your surroundings. FLEFF provides the perfect environment to grow intellectually and socially. One of the most rewarding experiences one can take from FLEFF is to engage in meaningful conversation and see where these topics take you.

Will you make a point to engage in conversation during FLEFF week?

The picture with this post is a great representation of the dialogue that is so key to the festival experience. I think it pairs well with your content.
