Blog posting written by Amber Thibault, Cinema and Photography '15, FLEFF Intern, Lewiston, Maine

Hello everyone!

Let me just start by telling you how excited I am to be a part of this blogging staff. There are so many exciting things lined up for this year! We even get to work with international partners! Wow!!

Oh, before I get too ahead of myself, my name is Amber Thibault. I am on the blogging staff for the 16th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival and proud of it! We'll be exploring so many new avenues with the theme of Mobilities and I invite you to join me as we journey through this year's festival together. 

But let me give you a taste of who I am before we start this journey together. I am from a small town in Maine, a little place called Lewiston, and I am currently a sophomore in the Roy Park School of Communications at Ithaca College. I know, I'm a little far from home. 

But, with aspirations to enter the movie business, I came to Ithaca College for its strong connections to the film world. Ergo, I major in Cinema and Photography with a concentration in cinema production in hopes to one day work with some of the best in the business.

However, I'm not just a film scholar, I have a minor in Honors. This invitation-only program involves challenging courses designed to engage highly motivated students and encourages a well-rounded college experience.

I've been blogging since I started college. Because of this, I've always seen my life as an ongoing story, a journey forward into the ever changing future. So when the opportunity to be a FLEFF blogger arose I was estatic!  And as a cinema major I find other's stories engaging and compelling and I like to share these stories with others. Being a member of the blogging staff for FLEFF, I have the opportunity to see films and events with amazing stories. Stories that are near and dear to the creators' hearts. In turn, I hope to pay homage to their hard work my sharing their stories and journeys with you all.

So my question to you: Where would you like to journey to?

Hey Amber!
I'm so glad to have you on the blogging team this year! I'm excited to see how your extensive background in blogging will add to the FLEFF conversation. I, personally, love to explore the stories of others as well. I think my journey is constantly changing and I never know my exact destination, but in the coming months I definitely want to travel on the human/natural environment bandwagon.
I'm excited about what we'll all learn!

That sounds like an exciting journey! It's true, you never know where life will take you. All we can do it keep moving forward and take everyday one step at a time. And I'm sure that wherever you go you will make a difference.

Thanks for being an amazing team leader!

Great way to introduce yourself, Amber! I can absolutely relate to your affinity towards cinema and I think that this is definitely an appropriate internship for you in the sense that you get to interview some high profile artists!

Your personal blogging experience will definitely be helpful! I like how you describe blogging as telling your own story. I can't wait to read the stories of others that you're going to tell!

Andrew - Thanks for the compliment! I'm very excited to interview artists!

Kimberly - Thank you, I hope I pay homage to the good work of the artists in the telling of their stories!
