Dear Frameworks

For the past decade, the Fingerlakes Environmental Film Festival has
curated work which intersects with and expands the idea of
Environmental Film. Last years festival featured work from, among
others, Jem Cohen, Norie Nuemark/ Maria Miranda and Mark Hosler. A
number of interesting curatorial/ conceptual pairings were made. This
year is the first year of our open call for works. No Entry Fee.
Upcoming deadline. Please contact me on or off list with questions.
