Inspiring UNF-GACC documentary BLACK INSIDE: Three Womens Voices” Wins Grand Prix Award at the Deauville Green Awards 2013, Normandy France

(PRWEB) April 29, 2013

BLACK INSIDE: Three Womens Voices was awarded the coveted Grand Prix for Best Corporate Film at the Deauville Green Awards. The international festival celebrates the best of corporate and television films with themes promoting preservation of the environment and sustainable development. Held 16-18 April, 2013, in Deauville, France, the juried competition attracted more than 200 entries from over 20 countries. Presenting the award was Solange Montillaud-Joyel, in charge of information within the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in Paris. (

One of just five Grand Prix winners, BLACK INSIDE: Three Womens Voices was commissioned by the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. The Alliance is a public-private partnership launched in 2010 by former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and led by the United Nations Foundation. The twelve-minute documentary lends an intimate perspective to an urgent global public health and environmental threat.

Nearly three billion people still cook over an open fire, yet this age-old method of cooking ranks as the planets fourth largest killer. Chronic exposure to toxic smoke from solid fuels, or household air pollution (HAP), affects entire families. The death toll is staggering: four million lives lost worldwide to HAP every year double previous estimates, according to results of the Global Burden of Disease 2010 study, published 13 Dec., 2012, in The Lancet. (

In BLACK INSIDE: Three Womens Voices, director Rodney Rascona points to a simple, low-cost solution substituting clean cookstoves for traditional cooking methods that can save lives as well as conserve vital natural resources. The filmmakers journeyed to remote areas on three continents to document captivating vignettes of a trio of strong, resilient women. Despite geographical and cultural differences, Sarah, Vandana and Monica belong to a vast sisterhood whose uniquely personal stories mirror epic global issues: HAP as well as poverty, womens and childrens health, deforestation, carbon emissions and sustainable change.

Each speaks eloquently on behalf of the millions more who would benefit from the life-saving, clean cooking devices. The old stoves, they make this world black. They also make us black inside, says Sarah, a Gabra tribeswoman in Kenya’s northern deserts. With newfound hope for their families health and future, and more time and money to spend, the women become inspired change agents in their communities starting businesses, investing in the lives of others, and giving more of themselves to their children.

Joining Rascona in the project were writer Russ Haan, director of photography Scott Shepard and gaffer Chuck Linkes. London-based producer Phil Tidy of Urchin Productions brought together a post-production team that included film editor Warren Meneely, Goldcrest Post London and Prime Focus London. In-country ground logistics were provided by The Paradigm Project, GIZ Peru, Food for the Hungry Kenya, and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). You can find a complete list of global partners, as well as a Directors Statement, at the films website. (


Launched in 2011, the Deauville Green Awardsalso known as the International Festival of Corporate Film and TV on Ecology and Sustainable Developmenttake place each year in the historic seaside resort of Deauville, France. In addition to screenings of the finalists films, festivities include three days of networking, debates and conferences on green issues.

Innovation Expo at Stevens Institute of Technology Showcases 2013 University Research and Entrepreneurship and Inaugurates the Thomas H. Scholl Lecture Series

Hoboken, N.J. (PRWEB) April 03, 2013

Event on April 24 Features Keynote Lecture by Globecomm CEO, Student Business Pitch Competition, Spotlight on Financial Systems Center, and Innovation Projects by Students and Faculty

Stevens Institute of Technology will host its 2013 Innovation Expo on April 24, 2013, allowing the public a peek at innovative technologies, products and services developed by students and faculty throughout the year, and introducing a new lecture series on business and entrepreneurship.

The Stevens Innovation Expo is an annual, one-day, campus-wide event which displays the extensive research and innovation accomplishments of faculty and students.

From mobile apps to solar houses to financial software to biomedical products, more than 120 multidisciplinary teams of undergraduate students studying engineering, science, business, humanities and many other academic disciplines display capstone senior design projects, research posters and prototypes, which they complete in their final year of study, often with support from industry sponsors.

Students also compete in the Elevator Pitch and Project Plan competitions, selling novel business ideas to established entrepreneurs and active investors.

In addition, Stevens faculty members present poster presentations of their world class research in healthcare, defense, finance and more.

There will also be a special presentation highlighting research from the Financial Systems Center at Stevens, a state-of-the-art financial research and teaching facility that supports Stevens graduate and undergraduate programs in Financial Engineering, Quantitative Finance, Software Engineering, Cybersecurity, Business & Technology and more. The FSC applies systems thinking to analyze and characterize the behavior of the complex global financial system.

The hallmark of Stevens for 143 years has been technological innovation that solves real-world problems, said Stevens Provost George Korfiatis. The annual Stevens Innovation Expo celebrates the breadth and depth of academic study at Stevens and the impact of Stevens research and education within industry and society.

The 2013 Innovation Expo also marks the launch of the Thomas H. Scholl Lecture on Entrepreneurship, which features notable visiting entrepreneurs and executives who have started successful businesses or improved the financial performance of existing companies.

At the Stevens Innovation Expo, inaugural keynote speaker David E. Hershberg MMS 68, founder, CEO and chairman of the satellite communications firm Globecomm Systems and a Stevens alumnus, will share his personal experiences as an accomplished entrepreneur and executive with the Stevens community. He will explain how and why he decided to start two companies in a field dominated by large corporations and discuss some basic lessons about core values, company culture, people management, and financial and legal issues learned over 50 successful years in the business.

The new lecture series, which will feature a number of events throughout the year, is supported by a gift from Stevens Board of Trustees Member Tom Scholl, General Partner at Novak Biddle Venture Partners and a highly successful high tech entrepreneur and investor.

This years Innovation Expo is jam-packed with all kinds of cool events and things to see and hear, said Scholl. I am very pleased to have my good friend, past customer and corporate business partner, David Hershberg, as our inaugural speaker for this new lecture series. Dave has been there and done that. Hes an inveterate entrepreneur who knows one of the secrets of success is finding great people to work with and giving them both the freedom and the structure to achieve whats never been done before. In business, Dave never puts on airs, and in engineering if Dave says it works, then it works. Did he learn those things at Stevens? I dont know, but knowing the culture at Stevens and knowing Dave, it was never surprising to me that he picked up one of his degrees here.

The Stevens Innovation Expo takes place on April 24, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Stevens campus in Hoboken, N.J. For more information and to register, visit
