About POWER OF FILM AND MOVING IMAGE
Designed as a global incentive to enact positive change, POWER OF FILM AND MOVING IMAGE will be 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.
