Ethics film festival
03 October 2017
ACCA Singapore and the Singapore Film Society recently joined forces to launch the innovative ACCA Ethics Film Festival 2017.
The festival kicks off with documentary film Unravelled, about lawyer Marc Dreier, who was arrested for a $750m hedge fund fraud.
And it ends on 20 October with Wizard of Lies. This 2017 TV movie stars Robert De Niro as Bernie Madoff, the perpetrator of one of the largest financial frauds in US history.
Other films on show are Inside Job and Insider.
The film festival is the start of ACCA’s ‘ethics month’ which it hopes will help to highlight the launch of the ACCA’s ground-breaking module on ethics, and the release of it’s report Ethics & Trust in the Digital Age on the challenges of technology on accounting standards and ethics.
ACCA head of Singapore, Reiuter Chua, said: “The use of films is an excellent way to kick start meaningful discussions on a serious topic such as ethics.”
PQ magazine understands that there will also be some panel discussions following the films, so they will count to your CPD. Now that is a great way of putting in the hours!
