FLEFF Intern Voices

The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival from the interns' point of view

Posted by Alisha Tamarchenko at 6:37PM

Last semester, every Monday afternoon, I sat in the basement of McGraw Hall at Cornell University. The building houses the History and Anthropology departments at Cornell. Around a wooden table sat about 10 students, 3 undergrads and the rest PhD candidates for a high level anthropology class open to undergrad and grad students.

The day after that, every Tuesday evening, I sat in a...

Almost exactly one year ago, I was spending my days at Cinemapolis, bewitched in front of the theatre’s screens at the films FLEFF had brought to Ithaca in April of 2018.

I remember one day I spent a full afternoon and evening there, watching film after film until I finally emerged outside to nightfall and complete darkness. But I hadn’t even noticed, I was fired up and...

Two Steinway grand pianos took up most of the space in the room. Their presence was cumbersome. As I sat in Dr. Deborah Martin’s office I couldn’t help but continuously glance over; their grandeur constantly demanding my attention.

Dr. Martin is a professor of piano at the Whalen School of Music at Ithaca College. She is also the Chair of the Performance Studies...

FLEFF is right around the corner, and schedules have gone live on the website. There are over 120 films and events to go too, but not enough time in the day to see them all. I have gone through the schedule over and over again trying to figure out my plan of action. As I am also a student with classes to go to it...

As soon as the FLEFF schedule went live on Monday, I hopped in my Subaru, hit the gas, and barreled down South Hill in pursuit of one thing and one thing only.

Okay, ten things.

My FLEFF tickets. I marched into the Cinemapolis lobby and rattled off titles until the nice...

Visualizing chaos.  That is what Jacqueline Goss’s films do.

Her work does not fit under one genre, “for better or worse I don’t really have a definitive style, I’ve definitely made a lot of different types of things”. Goss’s work is often inspired by something she has read or a place she’s visited.  This creates a platform for...
