CineGlobe Announces its Seventh Edition!
CineGlobe returns to the Globe of Science and Innovation March 21-26, 2017. In 2017, CineGlobe will celebrate its 10th anniversary (and seventh edition). On this remarkable occasion, the festival addresses a theme which is crucial in this day and age – the blurring of the line between fact and fiction. Political, Social, and Scientific, this edition – titled Myths and Realities – will underline the importance of information and rationality in addressing the challenges that face our world. Our survival depends on our efforts to combat the increasingly anti-scientific attitudes which surround our modern day political discussion.
In today’s information age we can connect with each other at break-neck speed, spreading both myths and realities in stories that reach billions of people in minutes. With the dawn of post-fact society, where established facts are given the same weight as opinions, and where appeals to the popular majority can sway political decisions, how do we tell good information from bad? What do we take for granted without ever questioning whether or not it’s true? We all have our stories, but what place do they have in determining the future of our children?
CineGlobe 2017 will examine the multiple ways that myths and realities seep into our understanding of the world, even provoking the question, what is reality itself?
