With over one hundred events at the 19th Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, it can be overwhelming for film festival attendees. However, a little prep work will help maximize your experiences throughout the week of FLEFF. To start off, you should figure out the top events that interest you the most based on the schedule.
I have complied a list of on campus events which I look forward to next week.
