Blog posting written by Andrew Ronald, Film, Photography & Visual Arts '15, FLEFF Blogger, Mahopac, New York
Well here we go again with another great edition of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival!
My name is Andrew Ronald and this is my second year in a row blogging for FLEFF, but first year taking on the role as a Social Media Manager. I am from Mahopac, New York currently studying Film, Photography & Visual Arts with a minor in Marketing at Ithaca College. You guys might recognize some of my blog posts from last year, but this time around, the festival is taking a slightly revamped approach as the theme of mobilities is explored.
And what an appropriate theme it is!
Simply put, I love everything about communications. From the commercial to the artistic. From the global to the local. And similarly, a lot of these connections have to do with the presence of festivals themselves. Festivals are very unifying. They create binaries, connect individuals, and are highly established places of convergence.
FLEFF is no exception.
I can't wait to engage with some of the new programs we have going on this year, including the up-and-coming Derive, an urban exploration project, and perhaps the quintessential example of mobilities: flash mobs!
In honor of the new theme, what do you guys think of when you hear the word "mobilities?"
