Good stories with worthwhile messages always leave a lasting impression on the audience. When such stories are told via moving images, it can inform and influence millions. Meaningful stories, told through film and media have been catalysts for social, economic and political changes since the birth of the art form. The inspiration for the Big Syn International Film Festival is drawn from this unparallel power of effective storytelling via films. When important messages are passed in the context of a visual story rather than just a generic message itself, the impact is far greater than otherwise.
The Big Syn International Film Festival is celebrating exemplary films and videos that are informing the core objectives of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to the civic society, and encouraging them to actively participate in meeting the core objectives of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
