GE Focus Forward
Focus Forward aims to celebrate innovators – those who are hard at work, making the world a better place. A partnership between General Electric and Cinelan, the series commissioned 30 three-minute films from an impressive roster of award-winning international filmmakers. The creative brief was simple: tell a story about an innovator or a world-changing idea, and do it in about 180 seconds.
The series has been honored by the Clio, Webby and Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards. The films continue to reach new audiences and receive invitations from festivals around the globe. An even greater measure of their success is the way these stories make people feel inspired.
