SJIWFF has two major advertising opportunities that allow your business to reach our large and diverse audience.

The first is through the purchase of ad space in our high quality, full colour, 94 page program guide. We print 4000 of them and distribute them at all SJIWFF events as well as throughout the greater St. John’s area in advance of the Festival as a marketing tool.
They get into the hands of thousands of film industry professionals and film enthusiasts.
The second is through the donation of products for our delegate bags.


Local, national and international circulation: We print 4,000 copies of our program guide. The majority of those printed are distributed locally; however, copies are circulated nationally and internationally to filmmakers, production companies, other film festivals, distributors, broadcasters, and sponsors.

Convenient format: Our program guide is 5.5” x 8.5”. As such, the publication is manageable, accessible and user-friendly.

Quality: Since the program is the Festival’s most valuable promotional tool, we do not cut corners when it comes to quality. The overall look and feel of the guide, as well as the presentation of your ad is treated with the utmost care. We have each program designed by Perfect Day Canada, so you can trust this product is professional and world-class.
