John Scott, Professor of Documentary and Fiction film in both Ithaca College's Television-Radio and Documentary Studies and Production departments, will be screening a short documentary film at the 2014 Upstate Filmmakers Showcase during the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival.
The Upstate Filmmakers Showcase is, arguably, one of the most popular events of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival.The showcase, which features work from filmmakers who live and work in Upstate, New York, will be screening at 7:00 PM this upcoming Sunday, April 6th at Cinemapolis in the Ithaca Commons. This year's selection features works from Scott as well as filmmakers Chris Gallant, Professor Vincent Grenier of Binghamton University, Professor Andy Watts of Ithaca College, Professor Tomonari Nishikawa of Binghamton University, and Professor Wenhua Shi of Colgate University.
Students, including those of Professor Scott himself, typically enjoy the Showcase as it provides a glimpse into the usually somewhat-private filmmaking lives of professors.
Scott's film Thoughts on Liberty, a short documentary featuring some amusing, and quite thought-provoking, comments made by his young son on a trip to see the Statue of Liberty, was featured in the 2013 Upstate Filmmakers Showcase and received a loud round of applause from the audience after it had screened.
