GRFF approaches sponsors with an eye to long-term partnerships, a creative marketing opportunity to connect you with our audience. With a diverse range of sponsorship opportunities at our annual festival and year-round film events, we work with each sponsor to customize a package to meet both your company’s philanthropic and marketing objectives.
Packages could include any of the following:

  • Branding – An experiential marketing strategy to connect your brand with filmmakers, movie lovers, and diverse local audiences.
  • Advertising – Opportunities abound both onscreen and online prior to film screenings, as well as through the GRFF website and social media platforms.
  • Logo placement – Company logo is included in the festival trailer, on the GRFF website with hyperlink, and in festival news blasts.
  • Workplace wellness and appreciation – Create a custom ticket package to share with your employees acknowledging a job well-done or simply a time to relax and enjoy a cultural outing.
  • Sampling – Select festival passes are accompanied by a GRFF swag bag. Maybe your product would be a welcome addition for our film fans.
