We have three weeks to until the opening events of FLEFF!

Before spring break, I had the opportunity to interview a fellow FLEFF intern and friend, Justina Koffie.

Justina is a sophomore and a MLK scholar. She is a health sciences major. During our free time, I always see her attacking organic chemistry problems. Whenever I look at her, she inspires in me  the desire to work harder and be the best that I can be.

What have you done for FLEFF so far and what have you learned from it?

“One of the first assignments I was given at FLEFF was to help sell out the house for Albert Maysles' film Gimme Shelter.

I figured it would be difficult because the screening was the same day as SuperBowl Sunday. To complete this task I used a lot of the information in class to find the target audience. I invited friends who would be interested in the screening.

Turns out it was a huge success and we sold out the house!

What I didn't know about FLEFF was that the festival is HUGE in Asia and India. I also didn't know that while the festival is about the environment, the environment could be anything from  a social to any type of cultural environment.

Through FLEFF, I learned it takes a lot of marketing, creative thinking, and man-power. Behind the scenes we need a good amount of these three forces to have the festival running smoothly.”

Spring break is unfortunately not over and this means, FLEFF is coming up soon.

I hope all of you are excited. And I hope the excitement will overshadow the disappointing snowy weather of Ithaca.

What have you learned so far about FLEFF?
