FLEFF was two weeks ago and I still cannot wrap my head around it.

Without the festival I lack consistent intellectual conversations with published artists and intriguing scholars. In a positive light, FLEFF gifted me with insight into the world of borderless curiosity and now I know what I want my post-graduate life to be consumed with.

My biggest exciting find about this...

A new feature of FLEFF this year was the incorporation of master classes. Instead of a panel of guests explaining their work or interest, it is one person going in depth. This type of environment allows for much richer conversation between the guest and the audience.

This week I went to hear Dr. Claudia Pederson discuss the short film “Ulysses: New Hope for the...

Wow. I need a second to catch my breath. FLEFF 2019 is actually over.

I left Cinemapolis around 8pm after seeing Mr. Soul! on Sunday. Two other FLEFF interns, a friend and I had just seen the film and headed to Sammy’s Pizza for some food after an exhausting but exhilarating day of films and discussions.

That has been the perfect way to describe FLEFF –...

When my week started with the lecture by WITNESS, I knew the disruptions would be plentiful. So I welcomed them.

At that presentation, a completely full lecture hall discovered effective and safe ways to document abuses by authority. We...

The screen turns black and the credits start rolling.

You hear the shuffling of bags and coats as many audience members leave the theatre, satisfied with their experience. But the ones that stay that there is more -  the post-screening discussion.

The post-screening discussion is one of my favorite parts and I would like to encourage anyone who sees a FLEFF film this...

FLEFF opened my eyes to new ideas and perspectives I have never been exposed to.

"Nothing is black and white" is a phrase I heard multiple times during my FLEFF experience and it really changed the way I look at problems. It is never just an environmental problem, like in FLEFF it affects all aspects of politics, social issues, ecological, economic and...

A gossip used to be a best friend. It was someone who you could trust more than anyone, someone who knew you better than you knew yourself. Somewhere along the way, the word took on the negative connotation it has today.

In her latest short film, Kelly Gallagher attempts to reclaim that...

Staring at the Sun acts as a coming of age story that follows two Hasidic girls on their runaway from home and the dangers they encounter on the road.  

Going into this film, I didn't know much about the plot or the Hasidic...

"The best way to see things is when your mind is flat," mused Pawel Wojtasik during his masterclass session on Wednesday. 

After a screening of his 10-minute short film Dark Sun Squeeze, Wotjasik talked an intimate group of students and faculty...

Two and a half hours later, my head throbbed with a slight headache and my stomach churned. A film that elicits this sort of reaction is one I know will hold a special place in my mind. My experience of “Swing Kids” flies in the face of what I expected of a Korean musical film that was situated in a...

If you have read my previous blogs, you know that prior to the festival I had decided that I was ready to be ‘uncomfortable’.  I was ready to step out of my comfort zone and push away any preexisting notions in my head.

This week has been a week of distancing myself from myself.

I have been able to discover the vast power of dissociating myself from...

The first time I saw Dark Sun Squeeze, half a year ago, I did not know what I was watching. I first I thought it was dirty water, then an oil processing plant and then, about half way through it hit me. I was watching poop.

Dark Sun Squeeze, is a 2004 short documentary by Pawel Wojtasik, a renown polish filmmaker. The documentary is a slow and contemplative...

Prior to the screening of “Eating Animals” I jokingly said that I want this film to persuade me to become a vegetarian.

As I sat in the middle of the auditorium on the brown fabric covered chairs with a tiny wooden desk folded over my lap, I began taking notes. When the Health Sciences...

Hockett Hall hummed with the unbridled anticipation of hundreds of people. We, members of the audience patiently ambled our way down the steep stairs of the concert hall. Anticipation and excitement whirled inside me, finally, the long-awaited moment was here.
