In the Focus Forward "Short Films, Big Ideas" competition, participating filmmakers submit three-minute films featuring stories about people or organizations whose innovative efforts in medicine, computer science, robotics, engineering, green energy, or other fields of art and knowledge have had a significant positive impact on humanity.
