Happy Spring from Park Foundation!

With this year’s 27th annual edition of the FLEFF underway, and with many exciting events planned, we wanted to share the FLEFF Schedule below.

The schedule is now live at www.ithaca.edu/finger-lakes-environmental-film-festival-fleff/fleff-2024-films-and-events-date

In the following two weeks, many filmmakers and other guests will be in attendance – some in person, others remotely – to facilitate dialogue, discussion, and debate.

As ever, the intention is to create a space for community conversation – bringing the world to Ithaca and Ithaca to the world, all through the power of the moving image, and with Cinemapolis as our key partner in this shared mission.
