TED Cinema Experience brings the collective energy of the electrifying TED Conference to select cinemas around the world this April and May.
Three events from the sold-out TED2017 Conference in Vancouver, Canada, themed “The Future You,” will be broadcast to over 700 cinemas across the world. TED Cinema Experience invites audiences to watch as extraordinary speakers give the talk of their lives and share new ideas worth spreading live from the TED stage. In keeping with TED2017’s theme, this year’s speakers and performers will unveil the freshest ideas and insights to help ask the questions about our future selves that we often don’t have time for.
“Many people know and love TED Talks, but most have never experienced the energy and excitement of witnessing TED Talks being presented for the first time ever – at the annual TED Conference in Vancouver,” says Alex Hofmann, TED’s Director of Global Distribution & Licensing. “TED Cinema Experience invites cinema audiences to join the journey for one, two, or all three events, and provides a front row seat to the wonder, inspiration, and world-shifting insight that only happens at TED.”
