New film shines light on ACO’s work
[ACNS] The Communications team at the Anglican Communion office has produced a short film highlighting the work of directors and staff. It also gives a taste of the work of the Anglican Alliance which is based in the same building in west London.
The 15-minute film has been produced in English but versions with subtitles in French, Spanish, Portuguese and Swahili will be available soon.
Director for Communications, Adrian Butcher, said it was important for the ACO’s work to be better known and believed it would be a useful resource.
“An incredible amount of work is done through this office on the behalf of the Anglican Communion around the world, but I don’t think we’ve always been very good at explaining that,” he said. “My colleagues were a little reluctant to be filmed at first because their focus is entirely on serving the Church – they all shrink at the idea of anything that appears to be self-publicity. But it is important for the Communion to know more about what we do. This film is just an introduction to that.
“We often have guests from across the globe at the ACO. And, of course, many of us travel the world as part of our work. This film will be a simple way to introduce ourselves at home and abroad.”
