Blog posting by Karly Placek, Documentary Studies and Production '15, FLEFF Blogger, Monroe, Wisconsin
Hey FLEFF fanatics,
It's the year of Mobilities, so let's get moving!
My name is Karly Placek and I'm pumped to be blogging and managing social media for FLEFF 2013!
I'm a sophomore Documentary Studies and Production major with minors in Honors and Anthropology.
This year is all about movement. Mobility has been a reoccurring theme in my life as I've traveled throughout most of the United States and a few other countries. I even moved from my small farming town of Monroe, Wisconsin to Ithaca, New York for college. I hope to continue moving throughout my life as I take my future career in documentary and new media overseas.
I'm out to discover new ideas about the human relationship with the environment during FLEFF 2013. As president of the Ithaca College Animal Rights community organization,I'm extremely interested in our society's dependance on animals as resources. I can't wait to meet our eco-centric guests this year!
I'm also excited about FLEFF's new partnership with EngageMedia, an international social justice and environmental awareness media forum. EngageMedia allows voices from countries such as Indonesia, Thailand and Papua New Guinea to speak out about local issues with global effects. I can't wait to learn more about international environmental issues and maybe even contribute a short video featuring issues happening in Ithaca.
What environmental issues in Ithaca do you think need to be broadcasted internationally?
