TEDFilms: Four new short films premiered at TED2018

0

For the TED conference this year, we wanted to entertain attendees between talks — and support and encourage up-and-coming filmmakers. Meet TEDFilms, a new program for promoting the creation of original short films.

Executive-produced by Sinéad McDevitt and led up by TED’s director of Production and Video Operations, Mina Sabet, the short films acted as a creative palate-cleanser during the speaker program, a short blast of humor, beauty and awe.

Each film is less than two minutes, and genres range from experimental art and documentary to PSA and dark comedy. Enjoy!
