Movies change minds. At our Impact Cinema track, we’ll show the power of film to drive positive change – and discuss how to make this happen with help from a luminary of the global impact film scene.
Danielle Turkov Wilson is the Founder and Executive Director of Think-Film Impact Production. Her vision and leadership results in films that don’t just win Emmys and get nominated for Oscars – they also achieve hugely influential real-world change.
Our Impact Cinema track puts the spotlight on Danielle’s selection of impact films, with two full-length screenings (The Territory and Navalny), a number of extended clips and talks. Danielle will present a masterclass on how Think-Film brings impactful films to the right audience, exploring Think-Film's journey with the most well-known production companies and arts/policy influencers alike. She’ll also offer Q&A sessions alongside each clip shown, hosting some of the films’ directors to field questions and offer their perspective.
Impact Cinema is our film festival in miniature, focused on impact and ready for... action!
