Designed as a global incentive to enact positive change, POWER OF FILM AND MOVING IMAGE is being launched by John Gordon (founder of Intelligence Squared, how to: Academy) and strategic brand and content agency Finch & Partners.
Billed as an annual cultural happening and digital platform to see, expose and explore the ever-growing power and influence of film and moving image to define the modern world and the way we think, the event will include a series of thought provoking discussions to identify and examine historical and current moments captured on all forms of film and moving image. This will span 8mm cinema and broadcast television to digital, online and social media - and its significant cultural, social and political impact.
The project will launch as a day-long event on Thursday 9th February 2017 at The Royal Institution, London, bringing together leaders in the fields of politics, media, technology, journalism, film, television, art, social media and advertising. The full list of speaker for which can be found at the bottom of the page.
