Patricia Zimmermann, professor of screen studies and codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF), delivered two invited lectures in Hong Kong in late November as part of a US State Department initiative to foster cultural exchange and understanding.
On November 29, Zimmermann presented a lecture entitled “The Open Space Project: Towards a Collaborative and Relational Theory and Practice of Transmedia Documentary” in the communications school at Hong Kong Baptist University for Ph.D. students and faculty. Showcasing US-based transmedia projects exhibited in previous Finger Lake Environmental Film Festivals at Ithaca College, her talk theorized how these works simultaneously continue documentary legacy formations and also offer new shifts and recalibrations that significantly alter the documentary project.

Michael Kaneff ’13, a television-radio student major, uses his production skills to raise awareness for a medical condition that hits close to home: Muscular Dystrophy.
Kaneff’s mother was diagnosed with MD eight years ago. He now produces videos to connect with others affected by the disease and to help raise money for the cause.
"There are 41 types of Muscular Dystrophy, yet none have a cure," Kaneff said.
Each year, he works on a documentary that is screened at the Black and Blue Ball, a local fundraiser for more than 200 business owners and MD patients, in the hopes of inspiring guests to donate.
