Discounted tickets for Saturday’s program are available now for Rooftop Films fans. Just use discout code: IFPENV.

For the second year, our friends at IFP are collaborating with the United Nation’s Department of Public Information to present ENVISION – a forum uniting the filmmaking community, civil society organizations, activists, journalists, public policy makers, NGOs, and the general public in the shared goal of envisioning a better world for all and achieving impact through media.

The UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) serve as the focal point for screenings, panel discussions and social networking. The Spotlight Focus in 2010 from the UN’s Millennium Development Goals is the goal of universal education.

To this end, screenings of Jennifer Arnold’s A Small Act (HBO Documentaries) and Davis Guggenheim’s Waiting for Superman (Paramount Vantage) will be accompanied by discussions on challenges to achieving education globally,  the impact of individual action and philanthropy, and current issues around the U.S. education crisis.

To purchase tickets and for details on the program, to be held Saturday, July 10 at the TimesCenter, click here.

Tickets for the whole day are just $25 for Rooftop Films fans with the code IFPENV.
