Blog posting written by Shea Lynch, Documentary Studies ’13, FLEFF Intern, Glens Falls, New York

I’m excited to welcome you back to the 16th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival. It will be an energetic few weeks as the intern team prepares for the main festival April 1-7 and a kick off screening March 3

This season’s theme is MOBILITIES and as my last semester at Ithaca College starts, I think about what my future will hold after college. Emerging media is something I want to continue to explore. I’m getting my feet wet this semester through the leadership position at FLEFF. I help curate ideas, am a big communication resource for the interns, and help festival guests connect with filmmakers and films through my blogs.

I’m from Glens Falls, New York, a small city near Albany. Glens Falls is rich with history and community activities. The arts are highly valued; The Charles R. Wood Theater and The Glens Falls Civic Center provide the biggest avenues for art. We also have several small art galleries and movie theaters. I interned for a locally owned theater called Cinematheque, still running on 35mm. 

Social media outreach is very important in my community back home. As students, we use computers in our day-today life, but do we understand what really constitutes this global social network? How can we affectively spread our message to others? 

These questions I hope will get answered through my experience with FLEFF. I look forward to the journey ahead.

Hey Shea!
It's been great working with you as staff so far and I can't wait for what this year will bring us! You pose excellent questions. I personally believe that our generation is learning on a trial-and-error basis. We, the late-80's-early-90's birth cohort need to be more cognizant of the meaning behind the social media that seems natural to us. It's kind of a big deal!

I'm excited to get to work with you again this year! You know so much about FLEFF (it definitely shows in your blog post) and I'm glad that I have you as a resource!

Hi Shea!
I was just wondering if Cinematheque has to change to digital like Cinemapolis has to?

Hey Kristen, yes Cinematheque recently got there own digital projector, but they still have their 35mm projector and will use that as much as possible. The guy who runs Cinematheque is one of the only 35mm operators in my area, he's the only one who can fix them as well. Pretty neat.
