About FOCUS FORWARD - Short Films,
Big Ideas GE and CINELAN, the leading publisher of three-minute non-fiction films, have partnered to create a new series of short nonfiction films focused on the incredible human power of ideas and invention. The effort, led by CINELAN co-founders Morgan Spurlock and Karol Martesko-Fenster, and head of special projects Douglas Dicconson, is working with Oscar- and award-winning documentary filmmakers, to produce 30 three-minute films that will be featured at prestigious film festivals globally, followed by day-and-date distribution online and via additional platforms to millions of viewers. These films, curated by CINELAN Director of Content Strategy and Acquisitions Damon Smith, will be telling the stories of visionaries such as scientists, engineers, economists, mathematicians, physicists, financiers, and in some cases everyday folks who have facilitated human progress or reshaped our world by their efforts and inventions. Without production oversight of the films, GE aims to have the program provide authentic, enjoyable content, aligned with its own mission to viewers globally.
