Gumbiner Savett Inc. will be supporting the 12th Annual Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles as a major sponsor for the fifth consecutive year. Despite coinciding with the last week of busy season, the firm makes time to support the April 8-13 event, with several staff members attending evening and weekend gatherings and screenings.

“It’s a great way to destress from a heavy day of work,” says Shreedhar (Shree) Kothari, a shareholder at Gumbiner Savett Inc. and a board member and treasurer of the festival. “The firm has always supported the interests of its shareholders and staff, so when I was looking for a non-profit to become more involved in, they supported my decision due to my love of Indian cinema.” Born and raised in India, Shree enjoyed attending Indian films as a child. “IFFLA and the excellent films they showcase, offers me a chance to stay in touch with the type of movies I grew up with and love, even though I live In Los Angeles.”

Due to Shree’s financial expertise and deeply-rooted presence in the local community his focus as a board member is to manage and raise money for IFFLA.

“Shree’s participation in the festival allows staff to understand the importance of getting involved in the community when you are a business leader,” says Michael Savoy, the firm’s managing director. “Finding something that blends your business acumen with a passion is the key.”
