Experience the 'opening night' of TED’s legendary annual conference
A one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience the conference where new TED Talks are presented for the first time in front of 1,500 TED attendees, representing the world’s leading thinkers and doers in Vancouver, Canada.
For the second consecutive year, cinema audiences get this exclusive look inside the opening night of TED and experience revelatory talks and performances as they unfold on the TED stage.
The theatrical screening of this event features world-renowned thinkers, artists and storytellers who 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. A succession of extraordinary speakers - drawn from artists, inventors, adventurers, global leaders, and visionaries - deliver the 'talk' of their lives in the world-famous TED 18-minute format. Impromptu on-stage interviews and imaginative short films are interspersed throughout the programme, which typically concludes with a spectacular artistic performance.
