FLEFF blew me away.
I guess it’s my own fault for not really knowing what to expect, but to be honest, I wouldn’t have it any other way. The best things are the ones we don’t expect, right?
I never dreamed that FLEFF would be the intellectual, innovative, and global event that it was.
FLEFF was the first film festival I’ve ever attended and I know that no other festival will be like it. FLEFF, in itself, is a microtopia. It is a microtopia that cannot be replicated in any other environment.
Personally, I had a ton of fun. I saw great films, met amazing people, and immersed myself in all forms of media. But the most important thing is that I learned something.
I’ll be completely open about the fact that I’m a nerd and that I like learning, and everything I learned at FLEFF was not forced upon me. FLEFF was a natural environment, where every aspect was fully integrated into a larger whole.
I had a great time at FLEFF, and I can’t wait to partake in next year’s festival! I wonder what the new theme will be… any ideas?
