Press release from: Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization

A variety of short films from across the globe will be highlighting the human condition on Saturday the 15th of September at the Tampa Bay Humanitarian Film Festival. Sponsored by the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization, along with United for Human Rights Florida Chapter, the Way to Happiness Association of Tampa Bay, the Florida Chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World and others, narrative and documentary shorts from as far afield as Egypt, Russia and Romania will be screened.

More than 20 films will be screened.

“These films cover a wide variety of topics,” said event organizer Lisa Mansell. “As examples, we are showing a film on fracking, another on a program that helps veterans with PTSD recover through working with wild mustangs and yet another on a group of children who learn and perform Shakespeare’s plays. The point is to show that there are people around the world who have a positive outlook on humanity.”

The event begins with a reception at 4pm in the Scientology Information Center, 500 Cleveland Street in downtown Clearwater. Here, guests can pick up their complimentary festival badge and schedule. Screenings will be held at the humanitarian centers along North Fort Harrison Ave starting at 5pm. Refreshments will be served.

The festival will be capped by the 8pm screening of a full-length feature film in the Osceola Courtyard, located at 201 N. Fort Harrison Ave.

The Humanitarian program Centers, located along N. Fort Harrison Ave. between Cleveland and Drew Streets, house the social betterment and humanitarian programs supported by the Church of Scientology. Non-religious in nature, these non-profit organizations offer resources to help tackle global issues like drug abuse, human trafficking and psychiatric abuse to declining moral values.
“The Aims of Scientology are pretty simple,” said Ms. Mansell. “L. Ron Hubbard wrote that these are ‘A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights and where man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.’ We hope that by showing these films, people are inspired to help their communities as well as foster an interest in film.”

The question is – who are they? How do we know? How can we maximise the value they have and the value they provide? These questions are what human capital management is about. This book explains the answers and discusses approaches
