Media is strong power that without a doubt contributed in collective inclusion in world’s trend changing. Cinema in particular has its narrative charm of exposing our nature in creative, scholastic, scientific, historical or any other concept known to us. Most significant moments of our recent history were marked and memorized throughout film industry (Female role in society, films against racism, minority inclusion, questioning past, regional conflicts, births of new ideas etc.). Need of every creator to address global phenomena is strong even today, and allows opening a global interactive dialogue of creators, work and audiences.
