Accenture has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with the BFI (British Film Institute) and was delighted to extend the association to become An Official Partner of the BFI. As part of this, Accenture is main sponsor of the 59th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express® and will continue as principal sponsor of the BFI Flare London LGBT Film Festival in 2016. The partnership aligns Accenture’s global leadership in digital and information technologies with a strong, trusted and contemporary brand full of creativity, innovation and passion for the world of film and television.
The BFI is the UK’s lead organisation for film and champion for British film innovation. With ever increasing attendance at film festivals worldwide, this sponsorship also provides a very visual and high profile platform to showcase Accenture’s capabilities in action.
Since 2012, Accenture has provided value-in–kind consulting to support the BFI fulfil its vision for the future. Most notably this involved the BFI’s ambition to increase access to the BFI National Film and Television Archive and the BFI worked with Accenture experts on how a BFI branded Player could robustly serve a growing video-on-demand audience. More recently, Accenture has helped the BFI to explore and undertake measures that deliver energy, carbon and cost reductions, supporting its continued growth in a sustainable way. Going forward Accenture and the BFI will explore new digital solutions in order to enable more innovative and efficient capabilities that will benefit the film industry, staff, and audiences alike.
Accenture is delighted to continue to support the BFI and its vision for the future of UK film, including driving greater understanding, appreciation and access to film heritage in the UK.
