Through education, mentorship and storytelling
With the theme for the inaugural festival to be “Sustainable Living: Human + Planet”, organisers aim to empower youths and content creators to tell inspirational stories of ‘solutions and strength, resilience and collaborative spirit’ already present to create content spotlighting corporate-led CSR and eco/sustainability programmes and research that benefit and impact the community.
The Wide to Tall Film Festival aims to empower and inspire the audience – both young and old – to be the change in their lives. Amplify ‘Passion Makes Purpose’, through education, mentorship and storytelling, we want people to share their sustainability and ‘do-good’ stories with the wider community. We recognise that there are currently impactful campaigns and initiatives being carried out on the ground, and programmes supported by companies and government organisations, and we want to spotlight these efforts and share them with the wider community, so that we can build a collective effort toward a more conscious and sustainable society together.
Currently, the festival boasts an impressive lineup of sponsors, partners and supporting organisations, including the likes of the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), National Heritage Board (NHB), ABM Ten Square, Canon, Autodesk and Viddsee amongst other, that have come together to lend expertise and resources to further elevate the festival experience.
We are pleased and honoured that so many share our vision of the power of film and storytelling to inform, inspire, engage and entertain. Leading by example and by invitation to take on challenges and create their own perspective in engaging content creation.
