Free Event - Mozilla and Rooftop Films Present Terms of Service
Mozilla teams up with Hot Docs and the innovative, New York-based film festival Rooftop Films to present a free screening of fascinating and engaging new short films that investigate the myriad ways that the internet affects our daily lives. Our world is more connected today than ever before. It’s not all good, and it’s not all bad. But it’s all new, and it’s changing our human experience. We find love and connection on the Internet. And yet, hate flourishes as well. We join communities on the Internet, but in the process, we put ourselves in filter bubbles. Many of us make our livings on the Internet, while others lack access and are deprived of opportunity. Who are we in this connected world? And what does it mean for us IRL? Terms of Service will explore these question through collections of short films about you, me, and the Internet.
