17th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival

March 31-April 6, 2014 Ithaca New York USA

2014 Festival Theme:  

DISSONANCE   http://www.ithaca.edu/fleff  

Dissonance:  Clash. Tension. Disharmony. Disequilibrium. Contradiction. Restlessness. Irresolution. Imbalance.  

Neither noise nor cacophony, dissonance pairs together the incompatible with results that surprise, offend, invite, disturb and excite, spurring action and creativity.  

Dissonance sparks and ignites.  

Think of dissonance as the endless clashing of notes and chords in musical dissonance, of ideas in cognitive dissonance, of systems of life in cultural dissonance, of words in poetic dissonance.
