FLEFF:  Upstate Filmmakers Showcase!

03/28/2012

Contributed by Patricia Zimmermann

Join FLEFF this week at Cinemapolis as we showcase the extraordinary film, video and new media microtopia in the Upstate New York region in two special screenings. 

John Scott, TV/R and Karen Rodriguez, Cinema, Photography and Media Arts, have programmed two screenings--one focusing on lyrical works and the other on documentary--that torque the concept of microtopia. 

Ithaca College faculty are featured prominently in these screenings---these shows are a rare opportunity to experience the depth, breadth and beauty of the work of Ithaca College faculty, with lively postscreening discussions

Upstate Filmmakers Showcase, Volume I  at Cinemapolis Thurs. March 29 7:10pm  
 

These films represent a range of cinematic forms:  non-narrative, observational, dramatic live action, and animation. The films are lyrical, truly independent and finely crafted by Ithaca-based filmmakers. Including the works of  Mara Alper,  Changhee Chun, Cathy Crane, Vincent Grenier, Jason Harrington, Becky Lane, and John Scott.  

Upstate Filmmakers Showcase, Volume II  at Cinemapolis Saturday March 31, 4:20pm

These documentaries tell the stories of itinerant musicians in Mexico’s drug corridor, the last segregated unit in the US Army, and about Ithaca’s homegrown Porchfest.  Featuring recent  documentary films made by Ithaca-based filmmakers James Rada, Arturo Sinclair, and Gossa Tsegaye.   Admission charged for both events. Or use your festival pass.  

The 15th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, exploring the theme of Microtopias, runs March 25 through April 1, on the Ithaca College campus and downtown at Cinemapolis. For detailed schedules and bios of all festival guests, visit FLEFF.
