We’ll be back at CERN 24-28 June for an all-outdoor extravaganza of film screenings, immersive experiences, and and hands-on activities all about film, photography and science!
Submissions are now open for short films in our fiction, documentary, youth and immersive competitions until 31 March.
This year’s theme: (Dis)Orders of Magnitude!
Big Problems, Small Planet
This turn-of-the-decade moment sees humanity facing some of its most formidable challenges yet. The climate crisis has run out of control, provision of basic needs like food and water has turned into global profiteering, and the world soon faces the ugly possibility of global pandemics. Given the state of things, we could be forgiven for feeling scared about the future.
But at the same time, on average people are richer, healthier, and safer than they have ever been. How do we reconcile these two seemingly opposite visions of the world? What’s sure is that science and technology have accelerated to the pace where humankind is now capable of either destroying or saving the world 1000s of times faster than ever before. This precarious power comes with unlimited opportunity, but equal risk.
CineGlobe investigates this year the accelerating way in which society can make or break our future. For our tenth edition, CineGlobe asks, in ten years, will we be on the verge of solving the climate crisis, or 10 times closer to extinction?
