Blog Post written by Haley Stearns, Still Photography ’15, FLEFF Blogger, Buffalo, New York

1. Consider the theme

While each year’s theme merely outlines the concept for that specific year, it helps to understand it fully in order to apply it to different events and films.

2. Know the guests

Being a part of FLEFF in any capacity requires interaction with festival guests. It's imperative to know who everyone is and what projects, events, or films they are involved in.

3. Budget time accordingly

FLEFF week can be incredibly busy. It's necessary to plan out every second of your days in order to juggle events, films, and concerts.

4. Take notes

A lot happens during and before FLEFF week. There's no doubt that this is a tremendous experience, which is why it's so important to write everything down. You will thank yourself later when writing a blog post, commenting on an event, or simply reminiscing with friends! Don't forget to observe everything around you. Noticing the little things around you that only few people catch on to can add vivid detail and description in a blog post.

5. Breathe

As I've said before, FLEFF is overwhelming. There will be moments when you are completely absorbed in the tasks that you have to complete and will experience a very stressful sensation creeping into your mind. Don't forget to breathe. A few deep breaths help you to re-center your focus while reminding you to actually enjoy the brilliant festival around you.
