Every year, FoST produces a series of short films featuring our Summit speakers that highlight their areas of interest and the topics they’ll be discussing in their roundtable conversations. Summit attendees are encouraged to watch the films in advance so that they can participate in the roundtable conversations that interest them the most. To date, our FoST films have been viewed and shared millions of times.
