Look down at your feet.
Are they moving? In fact, when's the last time you stood up? Walked around?
Sedentary lifestyles are becoming far too common. Even I spend most of my day sitting - in the classroom, at my desk, in my car. We are becoming immobile.
Our children are stuck indoors while childhood obesity skyrockets. We want to go to the gym, but we're too busy with work. And after all, our cubicles only offer us 4 feet to pace around in.
We need Mobilities now more than ever. Mobilities are what move us. Mobilities are a call to action . Mobilities are the pains in our rear that remind us that we need to get up and do.
This year at FLEFF, the movers and shakers of the world will assemble. Those who understand the dangers of an immobile world will unite. Voices from dGenerate Films , who specialize in banned Chinese political films, will collaborate with the minds of Fulbright scholars from around the world. FLEFF creates a community for active conversation, for moving ideas. We will not only get up, we will run to a sustainable, mobile future.
FLEFF is mobile.
