The "Arab spring," credited with beginning at the end of 2010, has involved civil uprisings in 18 countries, the removal of five heads of state, and waves of populist resistance in countries far from the Middle East, including our own. It's hard to keep track. There are few people better equipped to help make sense of it all than Stephen Zunes, PhD, one of the foremost U.S. scholars of Middle East affairs and of strategic nonviolent action.

Dr. Zunes will speak in Textor 102 on Wednesday, April 16, 7:00 p.m., on "Democracy Uprisings in the Middle East: Victories and Setbacks."

FLEFF 2014: It's a Wrap!

Contributed by Patricia Zimmermann on 04/12/2014 

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

 ELIGIBILITY

Open to all.
