It’s time for the Oscars, Emmys and Grammys to take a back seat. Voting is under way in Boston College’s fourth annual Corporate Citizenship Film Festival!
A record 68 entries were submitted for our 2012 Film Festival, which provides companies with an opportunity to demonstrate how they have utilized video as a communication tool to spread word of their good work.
Entries in this year’s festival cover a wide range of corporate citizenship issues as companies tell the stories of how they are having a positive impact in communities around the corner and around the world. Health and wellness, education, economic development and protection of the environment are just some of the topics.
Public voting is open on the Center website from February 14 through March 3 to select 10 finalists. Last year more than 25,000 employees, partners and members of the public viewed the videos and voted for their favorite.
The 10 finalists will be reviewed by a panel of judges to choose the winning video. We will present the Film Festival trophy to the winner at the 2012 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, March 25-27, in Phoenix. During the conference, the 10 finalist videos will be available for viewing by the more than 600 conference attendees.
Voting in the Film Festival is open to anyone interested in weighing in on the video messages of corporate citizenship's brightest stars. While there is no other requirement to participate, we do make one strong recommendation: Grab a big bowl of popcorn before you sit down to enjoy the shows and cast your vote.
