The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival from the interns' point of view
Sunday, January 27, 2013
It’s FLEFF’s 16th year and this year is sure to dominate all else!
Hi, my name is Kristen Tomkowid. I am from Poughkeepsie, New York, and this is my first year as a blogger for Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival and I am very happy to be a part of this unique experience.
Additionally, I am second year journalism major with still photography and, soon to be, writing minors. I am extremely excited to take photos, learn to shoot video and gain more writing skill from my classes this year.
I spent last semester in London studying at the Ithaca College London Center. There I learned tons about the British culture, saw the some more of the world, and made some amazing friends. This semester, since I am back in New York, I am filling up my spare time by working in the IC Fitness Center, taking photos/writing for The Ithacan, Buzzsaw, and interning with College Lifestyles™ and FLEFF, of course.
I pursued this fantastic opportunity so I could learn more about blogging and the environment while also working with my peers. This festival’s promising events and guests should allow me to learn much about and gain experience in interviewing, reviewing, and writing for the web.
For this year's festival, I am really looking forward to seeing the two silent films, Sherlock Jr. and Sergei Eisenstein's October. No one watches silent movies anymore and being able to see classic 20's films with live music accompanying them is definitely something to see.
We'd love to know what you are most excited for. Write it in the comments!
