In the age of technology, the multiplication of social networks and the apogee of the virtual, which makes us lose sight of the true meaning of life, it is essential to refocus on our values and to make them live through our actions.
Humanists must incarnate their values and inspire our actions to regain that balance and the harmony that is increasingly maltreated on this planet.
I created the Better World Forum because I am firmly convinced that humanity must be reborn on a new basis, to allow the enlightenment of every human being to flourish and to illuminate our world that so badly needs it.
I am convinced that cinema has the power to put forward this aspiration to a more fraternal, more compassionate world.
Beyond all political, religious or cultural differences, we highlight
Environment, Bio-Diversity, and Ecosystems.
More than ever, we must protect our Mother Earth.
We need to unite, get out of the silence, build bridges and create synergies, not to revolt but to restore a proper balance, to guide and inspire future generations to engage for a Better World… so that peace gains the spirits, the hearts, and ultimately guides the world.“
