TIFF Film Series Sponsored by SAP Explores Present and Future Effects of Big Data, Digital Technology on Humanity

David Jonker, senior director of Big Data initiatives at SAP, said: “We’re in the early stages of understanding how digital transformation can improve the world and human lives, and we feel there is no better partner than TIFF to help spark a global conversation about Our Digital Future. As a leader of the digital revolution, SAP recognizes how Big Data analytics and digital technologies are moving us into unchartered territory and the importance of highlighting their transformative potential to as broad an audience as possible.”

The Our Digital Future series will explore the joys, trials and risks of the digital world through a range of films screening at TIFF — spotlighting stories that portray how technology can help us achieve our dreams, question our moral obligations in a digital world, and examine how digital technology will continue to affect our daily lives now and in the future.

“Technology’s increasing effect on our lives has become a recurring theme in Festival films. We’re thankful to SAP for helping to catalyze conversations around how filmmakers engage with these unprecedented shifts,” said Cameron Bailey, artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival.
