Immerse in a major international film festival right on campus. FLEFF is the second oldest environmental film festival in the United States

Students can immerse in the films, music, lectures, art, events, and master classes throughout the three weeks of the festival. And, for those who seek more, FLEFF offers a 4-credit internship experience in a semester-long course.

The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival

The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF), now its 26th year, is an international and interdisciplinary festival that spans film, video, installation, new media, music, literature, art, scholarly research, environmental activism, and more.  It spans three weeks in the Spring, with performances, roundtables, talkbacks, and master classes with directors and other artists held across the Ithaca College campus and downtown at the local art cinema, Cinemapolis.

Students can fully immerse in this world class festival through their classes in our major that are often integrated with the festival, by attending events, and by serving as interns.

The festival is academically housed in the BA in Documentary Studies and Production program.
