Our blogging team brainstormed a list of 17 reasons why students should attend FLEFF.
Number 11: An opportunity to learn through different mediums, art forms, and formats.
There are so many different ways one can learn— through hands-on experience, a lecture, a discussion, a screening, et cetera. It differs for everyone based on learning preference. It is important to allow oneself to soak up a variety of learning techniques.
Students spend a good chunk of their time studying; underlining articles, frantically trying to type the stream of consciousness that comes from their professor's mouth, and holed up on the 4th floor of the library at separate cubicles, cramming for exams.
I think sometimes students forget that they can have a learning experience in which they sit back in comfortable theater seats, take a breath, and watch.
Observation is a powerful thing. FLEFF offers students a chance to take a break from the mainstream undergraduate learning practice and allow themselves to gain knowledge through film screenings, musical performances, discussions, and other formats.
