The World Urban forum is pleased to invite all participants for an audio-visual display with a difference at the Urban Cinema room. This room will host for the first time the UN-Habitat Better Cities Film Festival at WUF. The festival, organized in partnership with First Main Films will feature compelling documentary and fiction films from around the world on urban issues including the theme of this year’s World Urban Forum - Cities of Opportunities: Connecting Culture and Innovation. The film screenings will be followed by discussions on the topics raised by the films.
The UN-Habitat Better Cities Film Festival at WUF believes in the power of storytelling to inspire and empower cities and communities. The best films will be recognized at the World Urban Forum, as judged by a panel of top urbanists and filmmakers. The urban Cinema room as a result will be a space that fosters civic pride, builds community and sparks our collective imagination for a better future. More Information
