Don’t miss your chance to sponsor a Film at the 21st Annual SLOIFF!

Q104Each year, many individuals and businesses participate in the festival by becoming a member of our Film Society by making a donation of $50 or more. Membership allows you discounts at festival and mid-year events, and discounts at a few local theatres too. Some donate more to sponsor a film or event.

All of this financial support makes it possible for us to put on this amazing festival and makes it a truly community driven event. Talented filmmakers pour into SLO County from all over the world for six exFilmmakers at partyciting film-filled days and nights, and sponsors are a very important ingredient to the success of each festival. They meet the filmmakers and actors at screenings and parties (some that only filmmakers and Mogul Pass holders can attend) and they get a firsthand look at why their support is so important to not only the festival but to the filmmakers.

Consider becoming a sponsor of a short film ($500) or a feature-length film ($1000) and enjoy the promotional benefits and other perks you get for your donation. For more information, go to Become a Sponsor. But don’t wait…there are only two weeks left to take advantage of this special opportunity! You can make a donation online, or call (805) 546-3456 to let us know you’re interested.

We are excited to unveil this year’s program of films and special events early next month. Some special events are already on sale, so please check for details onchristianelliott our website under News and/or Tickets.
