Face to Face: Imagining the Future at Tribeca Film Fest 2016

“Every breakthrough is born in the imagination.”

We couldn’t agree more. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Tribeca Film Festival and The Hatchery for what will be an incredible day of exploring some of the most exciting technologies at the forefront of global innovation today!

.Imagination Day 2016, happening April 19th in New York as a part of Tribeca Film Festival’s 2016 program, will not only be a full day event, open to the entire community, that will allow everyone to experience some of the new technologies first-hand, but attendees get to see some of the most respected thought-leaders and entrepreneurs developing innovative technology (like visionary entrepreneur and found of Virgin Group, Richard Branson).

The goal for the event (sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies) is to ask everyone participating to simply imagine the world they will be like in the next 20 or so years and to consider how we might get there, from here! The full day lineup (10:30am – 7:00PM) will include presentations, demonstrations and discussions on:

-> Tools of Creation: Reorienting Humanity’s Identity and Aspirations
-> From Metropolis to Her — Artificial Intelligence in Film and the Real World
-> World Without Wires — the potential for truly wireless power and the impact this technology will have on the world.
-> The Final Medium: Humans in the Machine
-> The Extreme Future of Medicine: From Prediction to Longevity
-> Virtual Reality in Sports: Immersive Performance Training and Immersive Entertainment
-> Daring to Dream, presented by Sir Richard Branson
-> A Journey Into Virtual Reality — attendees will experience immersive virtual reality as a talk by the masters of virtual reality (if you haven’t experienced live virtual reality, get ready for it at Imagination Day!).

The innovations happening across every sector that will fundamentally change our lives in the very near future (artificial intelligence, virtual reality, etc.), are happening so quickly that people (even experts) are finding it impossible to keep up with them, let alone fully grasp the immediate and long-term implications of these game-changing technologies.

This is why we are so excited to partner with Tribeca Film Festival and The Hatchery to bring this event to the broader community (not just geeks, media folks, and other experts, but to parents, teachers, students and ordinary people who are trying to make sense of technology that challenges our senses and changing our world!).

Friends of Served Fresh Media get a 50% discount thru April 1st (CODE: TFF75) and 33% off after that (CODE: TFF100). We hope that you will join us for this special day of imagination, innovation, and thought-provoking conversation!
