The Tallahassee Film Festival appreciates and needs your support. We are a small, all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your proceeds will go towards the mission of the Tallahassee Film Festival; future film screenings and events; community-wide educational and arts opportunities; and much more. If you have questions, contact us.

Here are some ways to support the Tallahassee Film Festival

Be a Sponsor

We offer sponsors the ability to get their brand additional exposure to local, regional and even nationwide audiences. Our social media presence alone garners 25k impressions annually at the Festival. We are Tallahassee’s only multi-day, city-wide film festival curating acclaimed films from all over the world and hosting filmmakers, actors, and other industry talent at events at physical locations in the Tallahassee region.

Opportunities to advertise your brand online at our film screenings and events include: website, social media, printed media, pre- and post-roll advertisements during screenings, and opportunities to host a screening.

We also offer options to partner with us on entertainment, networking and educational events year-round. There are plenty of opportunities for sponsor-branded events all over Florida’s Big Bend region. Contact us to discuss how we can tailor a sponsorship package to cater to your organization’s needs.

Sponsor levels start at just $1,000. Download the Sponsor Levels Info Sheet below to learn more.

Be a Friend of the Fest

Everybody needs a friend! We’re not picky; you don’t even have to like movies – but it’s more fun if you do! Being a Friend of the Fest enables you to support a community arts organization without the hassle of membership dues or emails from us pleading for your hard-earned money. Plus, you don’t have to keep track of when passes go on sale – or do anything really – it’ll all be waiting for you when you arrive at the Festival!

*T-shirts will arrive in 4 to 6 weeks or can be picked up at the festival along with passes. Be sure to include your t-shirt style (Women’s or Unisex) and size (S, M, L, XL) in the Instructions box when you checkout.

Passes will be available at the TFF Box Office during the Festival dates or at Will Call prior to the show.

Be sure to write your name the way you want it to appear on the website or in the printed materials.


We’re always looking for a helping hand with the planning and logistics of the festival and other year-round events. We also need volunteers to help at the festival itself! Relevant experience and a general appreciation for the movies will come in handy, but are not required.
