Cinema is moving. 

Usually at twenty-four frames per second for all you filmmaker enthusiasts out there (putting Peter Jackson's attempt at innovation aside.) But nonetheless, the statement remains valid.

Cinema has the ability to transcend space and time. Spark social rebellion. Create dynamic cultures. Truly change how people see the world. 

And hey, isn't this why they call them motion pictures in the first place?

But festivals are just as mobile. FLEFF is no exception as it gathers heterogeneous ideas and cultivates people, ideas, exchanges, businesses and, of course, films together. It is a hodgepodge of artistry and commercialism. A reflection upon the historical birth of cinema to today's Oscar-nominated films. A widespread connection between internationally foreign films to the ones made in your own hometown.

The concept behind mobilities is meant to explore the actual movement of people, ideas, and things, as well as the broader implications behind these movements.

And FLEFF is the perfect vehicle to explore what is mobile.

Wonderful introduction Andrew! Way to pull them in!

Great intro. I look forward to working with you this semester. Community is key!

It's interesting how you used cinema as a metaphor for this year's theme of Mobilities. Way to go!

I love this year's theme! You did a great job making the connection between FLEFF as a vehicle and what is mobile!!
