Brave New World Festival

September 25, 2016 16:33


On November 2nd & 3rd, 2016 the worlds of culture, technology, and storytelling will collide. Brave New World will be a place for engineers, venture capitalists, innovation managers, government officials, hackers, futurists, gamers, artists, directors, the generally curious, and anyone who has a story to tell.

Leiden University and the Leiden film festival are organising the Brave New World festival on the future of technology and societal impacts. It is a summit created to build an interdisciplinary platform for all of us working on innovation. To inspire and help each other. To dream of a Brave New World.

The events has exciting keynotes of futurist speakers, such as Ben Hammersey and Mark Stevenson. In the afternoon, we as DFS will collaborate in a workshop to create a film script of a futuristic scenario. 48 Hours Film project will run the workshop and film it, all within 4 hours. We are looking for six volunteers who want to help facilitate a film script group. Write us at and tell us why you should be one of the six to facilitate the workshop. Volunteers get a free entree pass for one day.

Find out more about the event on the website or on LinkedIn, or subcribe to the mailing list here.
