TED Cinema Experience

Once a year, the world's most powerful new ideas are shared on the TED stage in Vancouver, Canada. Attendees gather for a mind-shifting immersion in ideas that shape our world. Now you can take a front row seat and experience the TED Conference like never before in a special broadcast for cinemas.

What is TED Cinema Experience?

The TED Conference is where the world’s most daring and inspiring ideas are not only heard for the first time, but experienced. It is where TED Talks originate: ideas delivered by innovative speakers that inspire, awe, and rewire the mind.

TED Cinema Experience brings the collective energy of the TED Conference to select cinemas around the world. This year, the program will offer three distinct screenings from TED2017, bringing sessions to cinemas and offering an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the conference this spring, captured live.
