ZIFF’s theme in 2014 is A Common Destiny, which is most appropriate because we often draw strength from the experiences of others, reinforcing our awareness of the shared histories of communities, nations, continents, cultures and the planet. Indeed the common destiny of humanity includes the attributes and bonds of affection found in each one of us. As we watch the films, listen to the stories or hear the gasp or chuckle in the audience we share in that moment a common experience that only movies provide us.
As filmmakers, artists, musician, animators, families, communities and cultures come together during ZIFF we find amongst us common destinies reflected in our languages, histories and cross border affinities that define our diversity and Our Common Destiny!
