“We learn about different film-makers all over the world, so it’s more diverse in that way. But then in Hollywood, we learn about all the white, male directors.”

For the past month I have seen...

Ed’s journey to FLEFF began in South Orange, New Jersey, an affluent upper middle-class neighborhood. He was born on Long Island but moved to South Orange where he spent most of his childhood. Ed describes his town as "a place that everybody moves to from all over, it’s a little bit like...

The library was packed with students, including myself, studying nervously with midterms only a few short weeks away.

Tommy and I walked up to the third floor of the library where the chatter of anxious students was a little more subdued. We found a table towards the back where we’d be able to hear each other and not be interrupted by the constant flow of friends and...

My idea of film festivals prior to my involvement with FLEFF was very limited. I saw small film festivals as curated screenings and large famous film festivals as something to aspire to as a documentary filmmaker. But how they got to be such symbols of power within the industry and how to ever get there was completely unknown to me.

Listening and speaking about FLEFF to Dr....

The mission of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival is to bring awareness to sustainability through art and conversation. If you had asked me what that meant a month ago, I would have told you that meant you could find films or documentaries that relate to sustainability from a...

“It just happened,” is what Dr. Thomas Shevory told me when I asked him how he came to first start working as co-director of FLEFF.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Shevory on an early Thursday morning. Ithaca was, as always, in one of its fits of weather. This particular day the weather was warm, but an uncalled-for fog pervaded Ithaca College’s campus, not...

As Dr. Galvan, Director of Choral Activities at Ithaca College had said, “Nothing comes into your experience uninvited”, that’s exactly how I feel about FLEFF. I didn’t know really anything about festivals, and I didn’t even know I wanted to learn about them, but now I’m so glad I took the...

The term ‘Immigration’ seems to only have one angle nowadays. However, building a wall is not the end or even the beginning of the story.

To learn is to be out of your comfort zone, to diverge from what you already know. Education is a disruption.

Therefore, it is fitting that the theme of this year’s Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival is disruptions.

With international programming and controversial subject matter, the films at this year’s festival are expected to shock audiences. Annually,...

Last semester I was a part of an honors seminar entitled “The Environment and The Media.” This course was a complete and utter disruption for me and my way of thinking. Our small class comprised of four other students and our professor, Dr Zimmermann, dived into the intersection of media and the environment in all ways possible.

Ultimately for me, the class was about...

As a cinephile first and foremost, film festivals have always intrigued me. In my eyes, festivals were a distant, out of reach dream where I could find other people as passionate as me about film. When I moved to Ithaca as a 15 year old, I was ecstatic to find out there was...

Last semester, once a week, I sat in the basement of McGraw Hall at Cornell University. The building houses the History and Anthropology departments at Cornell. The room was lined with skull casts of human and non-human primates. Around a wooden table sat about 10 students, 3 undergrads and the rest PhD candidates.

As an Ithaca College student, I have the opportunity to enroll in an...

From chaotic city streets with thousands of people, double-decker buses, and trains all vying for space, and the distinctive scent of breweries that fills the air of “Auld Reekie”. To a small seaside town with one main road and the also distinctive, but very different, scent of seaweed and bait being loaded onto lobster boats.

The move my parents and I made in 2004 would...
