Sponsorship Opportunities & Benefits

St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival (SJIWFF) sponsorship offers high visibility opportunities through our annual International Film Festival in October, and year-round on our website and promotional material for ongoing events and outreach programs throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.

The sponsorship term starts in January each year and carries through to the closing ceremonies of the Festival. Early commitment for our higher level sponsors ensures maximum exposure.

SJIWFF offers a variety of sponsorship levels and packages. Each can be tailored to meet your marketing needs and provide you with maximum brand awareness, visibility, cross-promotional marketing, merchandising, product sampling, access to Festival events, participants, special guests, and more. The sponsorship packages range from the “Friend of the Festival” level, with a cash or in-kind contribution of $500, to Premiere Sponsor level with a cash or in-kind contribution of $20,000 and up. Major film festival sponsors also receive visibility throughout the year with signage at all SJIWFF events and programs and on the Festival website.

Special Sponsorship Opportunities
SJIWFF provides additional exposure opportunities through program & website advertising, specific program sponsorship, and Signature Event hosting opportunities. Program and website advertising offer prestigious recognition and association with prominent films and tributes. SJIWFF’s hosting opportunities ensure visibility at industry events and the chance to connect with filmmakers, celebrity guests and movie goers. Please contact us to discuss!
