Sponsorship

Sponsorship of the Maine African Film Festival presents an opportunity to add tangible value to your company or organization by aligning your brand with the arts and relevant cultural issues.  Increased consumer goodwill and heightened brand awareness are a few of the benefits you can expect with sponsorship.  Sponsorship of the Maine African Film Festival represents a unique and unprecedented opportunity, one that will only grow and expand in the years to come. We have several sponsorship levels, from opening night sponsorship opportunities, to presenting sponsor opportunities.

Sponsorship of the Maine African Film Festival shows an appreciation of the arts, an ability to recognize how connected Maine is to the global community and economy, and an understanding of Maine’s shifting demographics.  Sponsorship of the Maine African Film Festival presents a unique opportunity for your business to reach a broad demographic cross section and showcase progressive and forward thinking attitudes.

The cultural relevance and breadth of films and topics addressed during the Maine African Film Festival will generate considerable earned media.  Last year’s Festival received national media coverage, and locally was covered extensively in the Portland Press Herald, the Bangor Daily News and on Maine Public Broadcasting Network, among others.  We expect the 2010 Maine African Film Festival to generate similar media interest.  The Maine African Film Festival will once again use its extensive social networking platform for extensive promotion and outreach.

 A portion of the Festivals proceeds will go to a local charity supporting work in Africa.
