One of the awesome things about FLEFF is not only that it incorporates so many different visual and artistic styles (from documentaries at Cinemapolis to performing arts to live music at Delilah's), but that there are so many unique people supporting behind the scenes.
I had the opportunity to catch-up with FLEFF intern Jackie Nedorezov and hear about her FLEFF experience thus far. Jackie is a sophomore Cinema & Photography major from Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. She's been able to integrate FLEFF into the Ithaca College campus in her own way. Here's what she had to say:
"On campus, I am the Film’s Chair for Student Activities Board (SAB), which is the second largest organization on campus. In this position, I am responsible for showing the films played on campus every other week.
We recently added a promotional video as previews before each film showing to highlight other areas of our organization. Because a lot of people who come to our films are interested in films, I added a little segment about FLEFF to encourage college students to attend. Hopefully that got the word out there!
In terms of operations for FLEFF, there is far more planning and preparation required for these events than I ever accounted for. I never really thought about how much work goes into getting the rights to book certain films and invite certain performers.
With all the work that goes into this, I know I’m extremely excited to help run this festival smoothly when it comes time in April!"
Thanks for sharing Jackie! Now for everyone else: what are you doing to spread the FLEFF word?
