How does this relate to Our Digital Future? The internet, built on a foundation of openness and trust, faces great strain as it grows beyond Silicon Valley and into the myriad cultures, governments and organizations around the globe. Every day, regimes twist the internet's spirit of freedom into a vice that limits and controls. Every day, computers – the lifeblood of individuals, corporations and governments - are attacked and breached. Visions for our digital future depend on a digital foundation – the internet – that is secure and trustworthy; a place where economies, ideas, individuals and freedoms thrive.
The Toronto International Film Festival will present over 397 feature films and shorts from 83 countries around the world during 11 days. Full details of the selected Our Digital Future screenings, including talks and related events, can be found at sap.com/our-digital-future and TIFF.net.
