TED2016 Opening Night Live in selected cinemas
Watch the opening session of the legendary TED Conference for the first time on the big screen!
About the event
For the first time ever, the global phenomenon known simply as TED — a thriving movement propelled by ideas that are transforming the world — is coming to cinemas worldwide in partnership with By Experience. On February 15 in North America and February 16 for the rest of the world, the general public will have the previously unthinkable opportunity to experience the “opening night” of TED’s legendary annual conference, alongside its equally legendary VIP audience. Hosted by TED’s curator Chris Anderson, the approximately 90-minute theatrical screening of this event will debut the first evening of TED2016: Dream (taking place in Vancouver, Canada from February 15-22), featuring world-renowned thinkers, artists and storytellers who will share their “ideas worth spreading” about the greatest dreams we are capable of dreaming. What emerges is a spirit of wonder and optimism that represents the world at its best.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events – like TEDxSaxionUniversity – help share ideas in communities around the world.
