CINEMATIC CURRENTS: FLEFF AND THE HISTORY OF FILM FESTIVALS
Learn more about the history, curation, and day-to-day running of film festivals while immersing yourself in the many screenings, visiting filmmakers, artists, writers, activists, musicians, scholars and other very special events of the 26th annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF).
This semester-long course provides context for your experiential participation in this public festival, which runs from March 20–April 9, 2023 on IC's campus as well as downtown venues.
Students enrolled in the course will have internships with FLEFF. This course runs for the FULL semester, with the festival dates as part of the course.
