Blog posting written by Evan Johnson, Journalism, FLEFF intern, Marlboro, Vermont

My name is Evan Johnson and I am a blogger and intern at the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival here in beautiful Ithaca, New York.

I currently attend college on the south hill where I am a sophomore journalism major and environmental studies minor at Ithaca College. Home for me is a five-hour drive away in bucolic Marlboro, Vermont. I love it there more than I can say however I've found Ithaca to be a suitable "home-away-from-home."

I have an affinity for wool sweaters, the German language and any dairy product. Saltine crackers are my favorite snack. I have a funk show every Friday evening on Ithaca’s radio station, WICB, I enjoy rock climbing and my better days are spent walking in the woods with my dog. In the future, I hope to combine my interests in environmentalism and journalism in a career in scientific or environmental writing. 

Given my course of study and my interests, participating intimately in this festival was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I’m thrilled to be a part of FLEFF and I’m looking forward to all of this spring’s events.

FLEFF is an impressive rally point for anyone interested in areas of art, social justice, environmentalism and independent and new media. The festival is an opportunity to address some of the most pressing issues of today from a variety of perspectives.
 
I'm excited to be participating in and helping facilitate this dialogue. I’m looking forward to being in the middle of the action and reporting back to you about all the exciting films, performances, speakers and instillations. I expect my time at FLEFF will be engaging, lively and powerful, maybe a little hectic, but nonetheless rewarding.

It’s going to be busy down on The Commons. I look forward to seeing you there.

Evan:

Great posting--from Vermont to Ithaca!

What part of FLEFF are you looking forward to the most?

Hi Patty,

I'm looking forward to the variety of events. FLEFF may describe itself as a film festival but it's far more than that. Having taken a peek at the guest list, all I'll share is FLEFF really has it all. Thanks for the comment!

Saltines? News to me.
Where can I find a schedule for the films? Descriptions of films sound great. Wondering when each will play?
Thanks!

Hi Carol Ann:

We usually post the dates and times of guests and films on two grids, one for on campus,where events are free, and one for downtown, where there is admission charged.

We usually have it posted about three before the festival--until then, everything is changing constantly!

Hope to see you at the fest!

Hi!

I really like your insight into FLEFF. I was wondering, what drew your attention to the German language?
