Corporate Citizenship Film Festival

The 2017 Corporate Citizenship Film Festival is the largest film festival devoted exclusively to celebrating the work of corporate social responsibility (CSR) professionals, their companies, and programs. This year's Film Festival is presented by FedEx (NYSE: FDX).

Part of the 2017 International Corporate Citizenship Conference, the Film Festival is open to all companies regardless of size or location. To participate, organizations submit short films depicting one or more aspects of recent corporate citizenship initiatives. Since the inaugural event in 2009, the Film Festival has received more than 400 submissions. Among last year’s winning entries were films that featured STEM education, lifelong fitness and well-being, and access to quality healthcare for uninsured individuals.
