GE FOCUS FORWARD - Short Films, Big Ideas, a partnership between GE and cinelan, is a series of 30 three-minute nonfiction films, inspired by GE’s vision of innovative people being the catalyst for world change. Produced by leading documentary filmmakers from Albert Maysles to Morgan Spurlock, the films explore the incredible human power of ideas and invention and are screening at prestigious film festivals globally, followed by day-and-date distribution online to millions of viewers. GE FOCUS FORWARD films are distributed across cable and satellite VOD, gaming system networks, Internet Free On Demand services as well as in theaters and on DVD.
Four of the GE FOCUS FORWARD films will screen as a module entitled “Outside the Box,” as specially curated by Sharon Badal, Head Shorts Programmer at Tribeca Film Festival. Following the screening, a short conversation featuring Festival short documentary filmmakers Bryn Mooser and David Darg, GE FOCUS FORWARD filmmaker Michèle Ohayon, and cinelan's Damon Smith will explore the individual and the power to create change.
Outside the Box: Unbound imagination leads to inventive concepts that reimagine reality.
