FLEFF Mission Statement
The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF) at Ithaca College embraces and interrogates sustainability across all of its forms: economic, social, ecological, political, cultural, technological, and aesthetic.
The festival is in the spirit of UNESCO’s initiative on sustainable development. This initiative has redefined and expanded environmental issues to explore the international interconnections between war, disease, health, genocide, the land, water, air, food, education, technology, cultural heritage, and diversity.
Through film, video, new media, installation, performance, panels, roundtables, interviews, talkbacks, presentations, convenings, and congresses, FLEFF engages interdisciplinary dialogue and vigorous debate.
FLEFF links the local with the global. And it showcases Ithaca College as a regional, national, and international hub for thinking differently—in new ways, interfaces, and forms—about the environment and sustainability.
