Become a Sponsor

We offer sponsors the ability to get their brand additional exposure to local, regional and even nationwide audiences. We are Tallahassee’s primary weekend-long film festival curating acclaimed films from all over the world and hosting screenings and events at physical locations in the region and also online.

Opportunities to advertise your brand online as part of our virtual film screenings and events, include: website ads, 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
