Festival Sponsorship

Become a leading sponsor of MIFF

During the most exciting 10 days of the year in Waterville, MIFF showcases the best of American independent and international cinema, encompassing world premieres, classic revivals and inspiring performances, exhibitions, and community workshops. Our audiences have the unique opportunity to meet directors, producers, writers, actors, and musicians, who travel to Maine from across the globe. These artists engage with the community through film panels and discussions, parties and receptions, and educational programming.

MIFF is the only film festival of its size in northern New England. Each year the festival receives recognition in media such as The Boston Globe and the New York Times, and has been covered in DownEast, Yankee, MovieMaker, Art New England, and AAA’s Northern New England Journey magazines. Sponsorship of MIFF provides your company with the opportunity to promote itself in a highly visible way to a sophisticated and discerning audience, which generates $750,000 in economic activity during MIFF each year.=

A combination of access, placement, recognition, and exclusivity provides each sponsor a tailored package of benefits that ensure its sponsorship goals are met. Strategic integration into MIFF’s print and digital materials, events, and programs maximize relevant and high-impact exposure while enhancing audience and guest experiences. Standard package options above may be customized to meet each individual sponsor’s goals. Please contact mike@mainefilmcenter.org or 207-861-8138 for inquiries regarding festival sponsorship.
