Welcome to the first CPI Film Festival! Competition policy may be involved, intricate, and complicated, but it needs to be taught–not only to consumers but also to enterprises. And all competition authorities, established or developing, must consider education to be a primary directive. For our first film festival we’ve chosen to present some especially interesting—humorous and/or dramatic—approaches to this task. We’ve asked authorities from Sweden, Japan, the U.K. Office of Fair Trading, Singapore, and Poland to introduce their media and share their production values. And in our introduction we highlight four more presentations (including the secret filming of an actual cartel) from the Netherlands, the DOJ, FTC, and DG Comp. So grab a bag of popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the show.
