FLEFF: A Different Environment
It's a promising tagline. Promoting sustainability, encouraging environmentally friendly habits, and even being able to capitalize on eco-friendly...well...anything. But it's not just about carpooling and recycling, and FLEFF's interdisciplinary nature speaks in a stronger and more influential way.
FLEFF is about bringing people together for an enlightened and highly cultured discussion. It's a microtopia of intellectual unification. It requires musicians, filmmakers, artists, and guests who reside along a wide spectrum of ages to hold sophisticated conversations. It's an encouraging outlook on engaged curiosity and unique lenses to view the world through. After all, culture is saccharine.
By proposing these requirements at the actual festival, FLEFF projects its own sense of captivating higher-level thinking. Curiosity drives scholars and an inquisitive audience towards ascertaining information, thereby making them capable of achieving remarkable results, whether they are as complicated as groundbreaking medical formulas, or as simple as finding a shortcut on your way to work. Either way, the environment is defined by this influential role FLEFF plays.
How would you define "a different environment?"
