Sundance. Venice. Cannes. Berlin. Tribeca. Austin. Hot Docs. Ann Arbor.

FLEFF theme of the year is DISSONANCE – a concept that begs resonates with the theorist but rings deeply with the personal. It is about many things: Clashing. Tension. Disharmony. Contradiction. Imbalance. All these buzzwords are encapsulated in the feeling of being an outsider on the inside.
