2014 Boston Film Festival Showcases Samsung's Solve for Tomorrow Campaign

Feb 5, 2014 10:00 AM ET

The Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College is holding its 6th annual Film Festival. This year Samsung has entered a video showcasing our Solve for Tomorrow initiative. You are invited to view the entries and vote between January 27 and February 7.

At the heart of the three-minute video Samsung entered in this year’s festival is a 2011 contest finalist, a school in the remote village of Kokhanok, Alaska. In the two years since documenting their project in a short video for the contest, Kokhanok School has used their technology prize package in many innovative ways, not only to improve opportunities for students but to transform the community.

Samsung technology is being put to work to benefit everyone in the village, from exploring ways of harnessing wind energy and further reducing dependence on fossil fuels to reviving the ancient native Yupik heritage and language by allowing villagers to check out laptops and Yupik audio books from the community library.

Please watch Samsung's 2014 Film Festival entry on the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship website or their YouTube channel. By voting for Samsung's Solve for Tomorrow video, you'll be helping to promote the importance of science, technology, engineering and math while helping Samsung demonstrate the power of technology to inspire students to make life better for their communities.
