It's a wrap!

Thank you to all of our guest filmmakers, new media artists, musicians, scholars, scientists, journalists, activists, industry professionals, distributors, bloggers, interns, graduate fellows, junior fellows, Ithaca College faculty and festival goers for making the 17th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival a success!

Together, you created moving events, intense conversations, and meaningful dialogues that took us all beyond our comfort zone--and into dissonance.

Special thanks to Cinemapolis, Ithaca's local nonprofit art cinema for all of their contributions to the festival.

And special thanks to our funders: Ithaca College, the Park Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, and community support.

SAVE THE DATE FOR the 18th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF)  April 6-12, 2015

FLEFF: A DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT

 The time has come to commemorate Latin@s as an integral part of this community through a public display of art. CULTURA and the Latino Civic Association are excited to commission an artist to paint a mural that celebrates our community's Latin@ culture. Latin@ culture is immensely diverse and we welcome submissions that honor a particular Latin American heritage, as well as submissions that encompass Latin@ culture in general or locally. A wide array of Latin@s live in Tompkins County that work, study and/or care for their families and each other. Latin@s have lived here for several generations, many are native to the US or have migrated here from other countries. The Latin@ Mural Project provides a platform for the message of Latinidad.

 TIMELINE

May 23: Submissions due by 1 pm

June 6: Winning proposal announced

Summer 2014: Mural painted

April 2014 launched the start of the annual performance review season.  The annual staff evaluation is a key component of the College's performance management process and provides a valuable opportunity for managers and their staff to review and discuss past performance, clarify job duties, set goals and establish expectations for the coming year.  The review process will continue to follow the same overall approach and forms consistent with last year, and it is an expectation that all staff participate in the process.
