For eight years the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship has hosted the Corporate Citizenship Film Festival, which attracts both domestic and international interest. This year, the event is sponsored by Mary Kay, and provides your company with a platform to share your CSR story with thousands of viewers, including the approximately 600 CSR leaders attending the 2016 International Corporate Citizenship Conference.
To participate in the Film Festival competition, companies are asked to submit a short video that depicts an aspect of their CSR efforts. In recent years, submissions have represented a wide range of corporate citizenship topics from different environment, social and goverance (ESG) areas, including volunteerism, environmental sustainability, science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM), healthcare access, employee engagement, technology innovation, and many others. We encourage you to take a look at the work of our past Film Festval winners and invite you to showcase your CSR efforts in the 2016 Corporate Citizenship Film Festival. In order to acknowledge as many programs as possible, we have added new categories for 2016 including company size.
