Read the descriptions of each individual film and event very carefully and learn as much as possible of the program. This way, you will have a clear sense of which screenings and events you want to attend most.
Once you learned about the program, you can invite your friends to FLEFF and explain to them what each film and event is about. I went over the program and my personal list of films and events I wanted to go with my roommate, my TA session for Intermediate Chinese class, and an English as a Second Language class at BOCES, where I teach English to all over the world as a volunteer.
The passes will be sold at Ithaca College Bookstore for $20 for 5 screenings. Get two passes and attend to films and events as many as possible.
Plan carefully about which films and events you want to go. Get your festival passes cashed in for tickets in advance to avoid waiting in long lines outside of the theater.
As a staffer of a film festival, your role is an ambassador. You are representing not only the film festival but also the college. Don’t be afraid to talk to the guests. Remember: film festivals are supposed to be places where meaningful conversations happen!
