Can film change the world?
The Event – London
8:30am - 5:30pm – 9 February 2017 at The Royal Institution
Films can inform, move, entertain and, ultimately, inspire change. As the film world comes to town for the BAFTA Awards, we’re rolling out our own red carpet for a special one-day symposium exploring the Power of Film and Moving Image. Join us as we turn the spotlight on to some of the nation’s leading commentators, activists and writers and ask them to reflect on the impact of feature films, documentaries, advertising, GoPro footage, Facebook Live, and other media on culture and politics.
See our list of speakers below and get set for an amazing, thought-provoking day.
