An Overview

The Convergence Film Festival is a platform powered by High Tech Youth and Adobe Project 1324, enabling our young people to share their creativity through film and moreover engage in the on-going conversation around the concepts and outcomes of convergence, to look at diversity as a strength and through the eyes of inclusion move forward together.

To converge means to meet at a point, to incline toward each other, lines that are not parallel, a finite sum, the ability to unite with a common voice.
