Support the SLO Film Festival
Sponsoring the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival is a great way to support this important cultural event as well as gain excellent marketing exposure for your business. We encourage all levels of sponsorship and encourage you to get involved in the Festival soon to take advantage of many months of promotion leading up the 2022 Festival! All contributions are tax deductible (Tax ID# 77-0367414).
Your donations help cover half of our operating budget. Ticket sales only account for about 50% so we can’t put this Festival on without your support, which helps to pay for venues, AV expense, filmmaker awards, advertising and marketing, and our small staff. Although the Festival needs over 250 volunteers each year, the core staff of two full-time and three part-time people coordinate the chaos and make it all happen.
FUND FILM EDUCATION ON THE CENTRAL COAST
We provide educational opportunities for budding filmmakers and film-lovers of all ages. Whether it’s our Behind-the-Scenes panels, Q&A’s at the movies, or our Filmmakers of Tomorrow Showcase for youth filmmakers, it is our mission to entertain, educate and inspire filmgoers and filmmakers.
KEEP THE FESTIVAL AFFORDABLE
The donor support helps keep our tickets and passes affordable. We are an inclusive festival, not exclusive and we want to keep it that way.
Continued partnerships with non-profits
It allows us to be able to partner with a lot of local non-profits by screening a great movie that matches their mission and issues.
