If there is one television network that epitomizes the GI Film Festival’s commitment to honoring American servicemen and women, it is the American Heroes Channel (formerly The Military Channel). And GIFF is pleased to announce that AHC is back on board for the 8th consecutive year as a sponsor and promotional partner.
“AHC has been a valued partner from day one,” said GI Film Festival President Brandon Millett. “We are very proud of our association with AHC, which continues to tell the stories of American veterans past and present, as well as other heroes who display remarkable courage and selflessness under the most difficult of circumstances.”
Debuting on March 3, 2014 in 62 million homes, American Heroes Channel expands on the network’s promise to honor the great defenders of our freedom, while providing a rare glimpse into major events that shaped our world and the trailblazers and unexpected advocates who made a difference. The brand expansion to American Heroes Channel features an expanded mix of programming targeted to an audience of P25-54, with an emphasis on men, and will be supported by on-air, off-air and online marketing elements rolling out starting in a few weeks.
The only network dedicated to the timeless stories in which a challenge appears – be it a situation or a villain – and a hero arises, American Heroes Channel explores compelling and uplifting true stories of the bold men and women who have distinguished themselves by their actions.
These are the stories of people and events that transcend time and place: from the heroes of Omaha Beach, to the scientists who worked tirelessly during the Space Race, to the SEAL Team Six takedown of Osama Bin Laden, to a young Marine who saved lives during Hurricane Katrina. These stories bridge the connection between lessons of past and legends of today, and demonstrate – for all generations –how courage and conviction shape the future.
