Blog posting written by Chloe Wilson, Television-Radio ’14, FLEFF Intern, Ashland, Massachusetts.

Hello!

My name is Chloe.  I am a sophomore Television-Radio major with a concentration in scriptwriting.  I have a triple minor in Legal Studies, History, and the Humanities and Sciences Honors Program.

I grew up in Ashland, Massachusetts (the original home of the Boston Marathon!) and was determined to spend my college years in New York City.  I ended up not in New York City, and I couldn’t be happier.  Ithaca is the place that I’m supposed to be. 

As introductions go, I don’t do labels.  I find it impossible to identify myself without elaborating on why I used the words I did.  And yet, blog posts can only take so much space, so I’m going to do my best to introduce myself. (Concisely, of course.)

I love telling stories.  I love discovering characters in real life and I love creating them in my screenplays.  I believe that everyone and everything has an enthralling story.  It just may have not been found yet.

I love working with people.  I have a strong passion for peer advising, which rose out of my desire to discover the stories of others.  I also love helping people and enjoy working to make a difference.

I believe that we can learn from people just as much as we can help them.  This is why I was attracted to FLEFF.  It’s unique position as a curated and interdisciplinary film festival lets me partake in the dynamic intellectual engagement that no other festival offers.

I can’t wait for FLEFF 2012! I’m excited to become more active with downtown Ithaca through FLEFF. This year, The Finger Lakes Wine Center will host all of our after-event parties.  Try to tell me that that’s not awesome.  Go on. I dare you! 

As they did last year, Cinemapolis will host our film screenings.  The official film schedule for FLEFF is TBD, but Cinemapolis is screening OKA! at 4:30 PM on Sunday, Febuary 12th.  FLEFF is co-sponsoring the event and a Q&A with director Lavinia Currier. 

Again: it's going to be awesome.

FLEFF 2012 is going to be the opportunity of a lifetime.  FLEFF challenges us to broaden what we know and immerse ourselves in what we don't, and this year's theme of microtopias only furthers that.

Personally, I'm really excited in learning about new media technologies through FLEFF.  What about you FLEFFers"  What are you most excited for in FLEFF 2012?

Good enthusiasm, Chloe!

I empathize with your "no labels" introduction. I think FLEFF draws a wide variety of people and this is precisely the kind of non-judgemental and enthusiastic attitude the festival needs.

As for what I'm most excited about, sound designer Patrick Winters is going to be QUITE interesting. Sound design in cinema usually doesn't get attention unless it's a blockbuster action movie. We forget that there are intelligent people making creative decisions on even the smallest films.

I'm interested to hear what YOU'RE most excited for, in addition to everybody else. How about it, folks? Any Buster Keaton fans? How about "Nanook of the North"?

Loved the introduction, Chloe! I am most excited to explore the world of activism through film rather than words/print. This is such an important topic to me, and I am curious how the theme of "microtopias" will be tying all the films together!

Hello Chloe, great to hear your introduction! You seem quite personable and energetic - perfect for FLEFF once it rolls around! I wholeheartedly agree that 'everyone has a story', that's part of what makes reading others' blogs so fascinating!

Can't wait to hear more from you, and as for what I'm most excited about for FLEFF... it's a tie between the festival itself, and being able to read new blog posts every week!

Hello Chloe,
Your enthusiasm for Ithaca College and for FLEFF is contagious. We are very pleased to have you on board for this year's festival. Glad that you see the connection between the theme of microtopias and the festival as an actual experience. Given your knack for storytelling and your interest in new technologies, I am certain that you will contribute a great deal to this year's festival. We hope that you will learn a great deal from your participation as well.
