hello. and welcome! I invite you to join me at the 2012 Benevolent Media Festival, a four-day celebration of storytellers, designers, filmmakers, photographers and other creatives dedicated to social and environmental good. We held our inaugural festival last November, and I’m proud to say that our team of volunteers and community partners held film screenings, hosted open mic nights, led youth workshops, staged a benefit concert, showcased a charity design day and much, much more. In total, more than 400 people engaged in 18 different events held across the city, and thousands more supported us through viral marketing and promotion. As a sponsor you’ll help us create these meaningful events and experiences for even more attendees in 2012! This year’s festival is organized along five main themes: Learn, Revive, Sustain, Heal, and Empower. Our signature events will include an opening party, video showcase, networking lounge, and a pitch night for entrepreneurs. Just like last year, we’ll also invite other individuals and organizations to submit their own lectures, workshops, performances, networking events and other activities to the agenda.Join us in the movement to These are all great opportunities to get in front of a passionate and sociallyunite the community of conscious group of young professionals in the D.C. area.
