2015 Film Festival
The Submission Period Will Begin January 19th.
More than 6 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube, and these videos are shared over and over across social media channels.
You may already be using video to tell your corporate citizenship and CSR story. Here's your opportunity to share your company story with thousands more viewers, and a unique opportunity to be recognized for telling it well.
Entry in the BC CCC Film Festival gives companies a chance to inform employees of corporate citizenship efforts while engaging in the online voting process. Last year, over 60,000 individuals viewed and voted for their favorite videos, proof that video is an effective vehicle to tell your corporate citizenship story both to internal and external audiences. The Film Festival is also a great way to engage your employees and partners and mobilize them around your successful corporate citizenship efforts.
