Blog posting written by Amber Thibault, Cinema and Photography '15, FLEFF Intern, Lewiston, Maine
Let me just start by telling you how excited I am to be a part of this blogging staff. There are so many exciting things lined up for this year! We even get to work with international partners! Wow!!
Oh, before I get too ahead of myself, my name is Amber Thibault. I am on the blogging staff for the 16th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival and proud of it! We'll be exploring so many new avenues with the theme of Mobilities and I invite you to join me as we journey through this year's festival together.
But let me give you a taste of who I am before we start this journey together. I am from a small town in Maine, a little place called Lewiston, and I am currently a sophomore in the Roy Park School of Communications at Ithaca College. I know, I'm a little far from home.
But, with aspirations to enter the movie business, I came to Ithaca College for its strong connections to the film world. Ergo, I major in Cinema and Photography with a concentration in cinema production in hopes to one day work with some of the best in the business.
However, I'm not just a film scholar, I have a minor in Honors. This invitation-only program involves challenging courses designed to engage highly motivated students and encourages a well-rounded college experience.
I've been blogging since I started college. Because of this, I've always seen my life as an ongoing story, a journey forward into the ever changing future. So when the opportunity to be a FLEFF blogger arose I was estatic! And as a cinema major I find other's stories engaging and compelling and I like to share these stories with others. Being a member of the blogging staff for FLEFF, I have the opportunity to see films and events with amazing stories. Stories that are near and dear to the creators' hearts. In turn, I hope to pay homage to their hard work my sharing their stories and journeys with you all.
So my question to you: Where would you like to journey to?
