It's FLEFF week! Welcome back FLEFFers!
Things are already in motion and the past couple days have been great! If you have been to an event or two already make sure to keep going. If not, make sure to start! Tonight A Film Unfinished is playing at Ithaca College in Textor 103. You can check out the details here.
Also today, New Media artist Laura Deutch will be in Friends 205 at 4PM to speak on environmental digital activism. Which is then followed at 5:25PM with a Workshop on Environmental Docs and Persuasive Storytelling in the same place. That event is presented by Tom Swarthout, commercial feature film and television editor.
Many things are happening so make sure to drop by.
The main point of this post is to alert you of the FLEFF Lab meet ups in Park 220 this Friday. All day starting at 10AM we have new guests every hour available to speak. At 3 p.m. there will be investigative journalist and independent filmmaker Danny Schechter.
Schechter’s work has won many awards over the years and he does a lot in the industry. His most recent investigative documentary is Plunder. This documentary investigates the recent economic crisis and its roots in crime and fraud from major companies. It is an extremely gripping work of investigative journalism.
You won’t want to miss this opportunity to speak with award winning journalist Danny Schechter. So come to Park 220 at 3 p.m. this Friday for a discussion with The “News Dissector.”
Keep an eye out this week. The FLEFF website and blogs will be buzzing!
