We at the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival condemn the murder of George Floyd and others who have been killed by police in the United States with no justifiable cause. We recognize the deeply imbedded institutional racism that encourages such actions and allows them to continue. We realize that the US has a long and sordid history of violence against Black Americans. We stand in solidarity with those around the world who are protesting police misconduct and racial injustice in Minneapolis and other American cities. We believe that such actions offer a path to creating a more just and equitable society and a better world.
Although the embodied, on-the-ground festival was canceled this year, FLEFF has mounted two online exhibitions for its 23rd Annual Edition.
The first is RADICAL INFILTRATIONS, an exhibition of new media art co-curated by Dale Hudson (NYU Abu Dhabi) and Claudia Costa Pederson (Wichita State University).
The second is INFILTRATIONS: A DIFFERENT MEDIA ENVIRONMENT, an exhibition of short analog works, cosponsored by FLEFF and the Park Center for Independent Media
Both are offered to students and faculty around the globe to assist in their coursework, and to also bring our extended FLEFF community together, if only virtually.
The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival at Ithaca College embraces and interrogates sustainability across all of its forms: economic, social, ecological, political, cultural, technological, and aesthetic.
