Hello, fellow film fest enthusiasts, and welcome to the 16th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival!
I’m so excited to get started on this year’s blogging staff! This is my first year on the staff, so I’m looking forward to… well pretty much everything. From interviews with the artists to live blogging, I cannot wait to jump in!
Before I dive deeper into the exciting things FLEFF has to offer, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Erica Moriarty all the way from Houston, Texas. Currently, I’m majoring in Documentary Studies and Production here at Ithaca College. Perhaps the most exciting part about this major is exploring the many different facets of journalism from writing to photography to film.
As always, FLEFF will be bringing some amazing films to Ithaca in April. However, there have been some new additions. The new partnership with EngageMedia, an international social justice media forum, will allow the FLEFF movement to be seen around the world.
Also new this year is the partnership between FLEFF and the Derive App. This innovative app allows you to create maps of your city in order to provide others with a different way of taking a walk. The partnership perfectly fits in with this year’s theme of Mobilities.
It’s all about the movement of people, ideas, objects and environments this year, folks! So let’s get this ball rolling. How will you get going to join the FLEFF movement?
