We are trying to get the word out about a fellowship program designed to bring diverse perspectives to the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival (FLEFF) in Ithaca, NY, April 3-6, 2014. Please share this email widely. Your help is appreciated.
The Fellowship is available to doctoral students of color in all disciplines who have a personal or professional interest in sustainability. FLEFF provides an opportunity to share that interest with others.
The Fellowship will cover substantially all costs for transportation, room and food, and Festival passes. Up to 10 fellowships will be awarded.
Please contact Professor Warren Schlesinger to express your interest (firstname.lastname@example.org). The application process will include a statement of interest and a cv.

FLEFF Mission Statement
The Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival at Ithaca College embraces and interrogates sustainability across all of its forms: economic, social, ecological, political, cultural, technological, and aesthetic. The festival is in the spirit of UNESCO’s initiative on sustainable development. This initiative has redefined and expanded environmental issues to explore the international interconnections between war, disease, health, genocide, the land, water, air, food, education, technology, cultural heritage, and diversity. Through film, video, new media, installation, performance, panels, and presentations, the festival engages interdisciplinary dialogue and vigorous debate. It links the local with the global. And it showcases Ithaca College as a regional and national center for thinking differently—in new ways, interfaces, and forms—about the environment and sustainability.
