Why create a film festival?

The iimagine Film Festival is part of the iimagine project. The objective of the festival is to showcase films that have a maximum positive impact theme. The annual UN General Assembly is held in New York in September of each year and it has caused numerous other events that focus on global issues to held at the same time. The reality is that we want a seat at this “global issues table” in New York in September of each year. I decided to start with the iimagine film festival.¬†Films can play a critical and unique role in communicating what is happening in the world and what should be done about it. Filmmakers have the ability to combine the audio visual medium, the power of story telling and the ability to associat real faces with statistics to create content that is compelling, entertaining, insightful and educational. It’s power is even greater now that anyone with a phone in a part of the world where something important is unfolding can instantly capture the moment and potentially become a documentarian. Over time, the film festival will become part of a larger iimagine event that will include activities focused on the major issues in front of the UN General Assembly and broader global issues that we think are not getting enough attention.

Bosnia: Healing the Wounds of War
