FLEFF is looking better than ever.
Perhaps I'm biased because this is the first year I've been involved in the festival, but it doesn't make the assertion that this is going to be the best festival yet less true. FLEFF's partnership with everyone's favorite movie theatre, Cinemopolis, has allowed for an incredible line up of films to be screened during the festival. More than twenty films and I have to pick the three I am most excited for? It was hard, but here's the verdict:
1. Sherlock Jr. (Buster Keaton, USA, 1924) with Fe Nunn and Friends and Cynthia Henderson
Who doesn't love the classic, old Hollywood comedian? The hilarious tale of an underdog trying to prove his innocence in a crime he did not commit is guaranteed to bring the laughs as well as a trip back to the golden days of Hollywood.
2. Upstate Filmmakers Showcase, with filmmakers Vincent Grenier, Jason Harrington, John Scott, Becky Lane, Arturo Sinclair, and others TBA
If patience is a virtue, then I'm not very virtuous. At least when it comes to waiting for FLEFF! April 1st may seem a far way off, but March 3rd is just around the corner. It's the festival's kick off event, featuring works form artists in and around the Ithaca area, mentioned above. Certainly an event to look forward to!
3. Couples (Korea, 2011) with Director/Writer Yong ki Jeong
Maybe I'm on a comedy kick, but I don't speak Korean, and this movie still looks hilarious. This being a comedy film from Korean just shows the versatility of the 2013 festival.
Make sure to check out these films and the slew of others being featured at Cinemapolis this year! Can you pick your top three out of the list? I challenge you!
