Join FLEFF this week at Cinemapolis as we showcase the extraordinary film, video and new media microtopia in the Upstate New York region in two special screenings.
John Scott, TV/R and Karen Rodriguez, Cinema, Photography and Media Arts, have programmed two screenings--one focusing on lyrical works and the other on documentary--that torque the concept of microtopia.
Ithaca College faculty are featured prominently in these screenings---these shows are a rare opportunity to experience the depth, breadth and beauty of the work of Ithaca College faculty, with lively postscreening discussions
Work by artists Christine Destrempes, Christo, Raymond Ghirardo & Megan Roberts, Philip Govedare, s.c. Thayer and Jen Torres are included in "Uncommon River", curated by Gail Seigel. They explore the concept of rivers from a variety of perspectives. Rivers touch all lives directly or indirectly, but particularly so in the Pacific Northwest and Idaho where agriculture, industry, commerce, energy, recreation, tourism, transportation and countless jobs depend on rivers and where rivers are central to public policy debates on water rights, endangered species and wilderness preservation.
The Park School of Communications will host a variety of end-of-the-semester screenings, presentations, and exhibitions to showcase student work. All events are free an open to the public and take place in Park Hall Auditorium unless otherwise stated.

Feet tapped against the chipping paint on sturdy wood, fingers strummed guitar strings and singing voices echoed through the streets of Ithaca. The music whipped with the wind through car windows, giving the drivers a sporadic and brief preview of what they could hear if they stepped out of the car and listened. On this exceptionally warm and sunny September day, eight students watched the scene unfold through the camera lens, documenting an annual tradition in the Ithaca community called Porchfest.
