What does the theme of mobilities mean to me?

That was the question that presented itself. As I was thinking about this year's theme, I started to think about FLEFF and all the hard work that goes into coordinating and funding such a globally significant event. Then I had an epiphany. FLEFF draws people from all our the world. It mobilizes people to come to Ithaca for one week, to share in the same experience, and then take that experience and spread it around the world. And our collaboration with this year's international partners, EngageMedia and Derive App, will only expand FLEFF's global influence even further. 

At the same time, the international scholars and filmmakers who attend FLEFF add to the local culture of Ithaca and your own cultural exploration.

So I ask you, what cultural experience are you looking for?


Great ideas! FLEFF definitely mobilizes people - it's a grand call to action!
I'm personally looking to have previous ideas challenged this year...I love works that unsettle me... I love having my mind disturbed and disrupted.

Thank you for the lovely comment. I can say without a doubt that you will be unsettled. Especially if you check out some of the more avant garde film that come to the festival. I always get goosebumps when I see abstract art.

Amber, you illustrated up how time-consuming (and yet rewarding) the process behind coordinating an entire film festival is, and this was a great point.
FLEFF invites people to Ithaca, and then the events take care of continuing this mobilization movement!

Thank you Andrew. I can't wait to see the mobilization that happens this year!

I think mobility can be an abstract event as well. I expect to share in the experience through this blog. My mind will wander there but I will not. I am looking forward to having a reson for my mind to wander.

Amber Thibault you done a great job I read about FLEFF and I am happy to see that they are doing great job, because at funding such a global level is not an easy and simple task, itís requires a lot of hard work and management of all the people to work as a team, actually I was searching for work experience degree and I came here, I am a social worker and have great experience in that field and have great collaboration with international partners and I also want to work with you organization.

Mobile phones always help us to connect with others like when we need help from anyone then just dial there number and share our problems with them and also it helps us to connect with other countries citizenís as well and also as a student it helps a lot to get help from and complete pending work with the help and assistance and thank you for sharing it with us.

Thank you for sharing !
