Booz Allen Hamilton to Sponsor the 21st Annual Environmental Film Festival

Booz Allen Hamilton, recognized as one of the most prestigious technology consulting firms in the world, is bringing its resources to the big screen. The company will be sponsoring the 21st Annual Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital this month (March 12-24), which seeks to advance public understanding of the environment through the power of film.

 

From the official website of the Festival, "The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital has become one of the world’s largest and most influential showcases of environmental film and a major collaborative cultural event in Washington, D.C. Each March, the Festival presents a diverse selection of high quality environmental films… Documentaries, features, animations and shorts are shown, as well as archival, experimental and children’s film at venues throughout the city. Selected to provide fresh perspectives on global environmental issues, most Festival films are accompanied by discussions with filmmakers, environmental experts and special guests, including national decision makers and thought leaders, and are free to the public.”

 

Booz Allen's Senior Vice President Gary Rahl first became interested in the Festival after attending a screening. The positive impact the film had on the attendees spoke to him in such a way that he suggested the company become a sponsor. Rahl is now a member of the Festival’s board of directors.

 

“Each year I’ve watched the Festival grow, but what remains constant is that the films are always an incredible blend of art, information, education and entertainment from unique points of view,” comments Rahl. “Some films are ‘calls to action’ about specific environmental problems, and others focus on people who are making a difference today, but each one explores some aspect of our relationship with the environment. While most commercial films want you to leave the theater feeling good, many of the films in the Festival aren’t afraid to challenge you. You may be inspired by one film and completely disagree with another, but either way you will broaden your awareness of the world we all ultimately share.”

 

Rahl feels, as a consultant in the energy and environment field, that the Festival can provide useful information to Booz Allen employees. The company believes that the arts and humanities are integral to the vibrancy of its corporate culture. The new partnership with the Environmental Film Festival serves to continue the company mission of arts development and preservation, while also educating employees on issues that may directly correlate to their work.
