(Dis)Orders of Magnitude

Big Problems, Small Planet

This turn-of-the-decade moment sees humanity facing some of its most formidable challenges yet. The climate crisis has run out of control, provision of basic needs like food and water has turned into global profiteering, and the world soon faces the ugly possibility of global bacterial pandemics. Given the state of things, we could be forgiven for feeling scared about the future.

But at the same time, on average people are richer, healthier, and safer than they have ever been. How do we reconcile these two seemingly opposite visions of the world? What’s sure is that science and technology have accelerated to the pace where humankind is now capable of either destroying or saving the world 1000s of times faster than ever before. This precarious power comes with unlimited opportunity, but equal risk.

CineGlobe investigates this year the accelerating way in which society can make or break our future. On the anniversary of our tenth edition, CineGlobe asks, in ten years, will we be on the verge of solving the climate crisis, or 10 times closer to extinction?


Send us your short films of any format that speak to the themes of (Dis)Orders of Magnitude. Don’t be shy - we’ve got varied tastes and are looking for refreshing, unusual works that you might not expect to see at a regular science film festival.
