Blog posting written by Dorothea Hinman, Cinema and Photography '15, FLEFF blogger, Rochester, NY
When asked to reflect upon my FLEFF experience thus far, I don't know where to start.
So far, I've had to the opportunity to interview and write about significant and influential artist, participate in countless flash mobs, Skype with international names such as Enrico Aditjondro, talk to fellow filmmakers at Cinemapolis about FLEFF and work with a close knit group of fellow bloggers.
And that's only what I've done so far.
The festival is coming up in about a month, but this Sunday, March 3rd, is the Upstate Filmmakers Showcase at Cinemapolis! The lineup was just released, check it out here! After that we will continue preparations for the festival from April 1st to April 7th. Only time will tell exactly what I have to look forward to, but if it's anything like the past two months, it will be engaging, fruitful, and flat out enjoyable.
With all these things I have been engaged in, I have hardly had time to look back and realize how much more knowledgable about FLEFF. This time last year I heard whisperings of FLEFF from my friends and from the various social medias college students take advantage of. Little did I know that in a year I would be an important part of the blogging team, constantly receiving updates about the festival and assignments to push it out. I now feel as though I am part of something much bigger, and yet it still feels very personal and intimate.
My time in festivals has been full of excitement, speed, social media, and conversations. I cannot wait to see what else I see in the coming months! What have you learned from FLEFF?
