Sponsorship Opportunities


Approximately 4,000 affluent, highly-educated, city and suburban film lovers from the Rochester area and beyond, along with film industry professionals (and possibly a celebrity or two!) are expected during the festival.

At the High Falls Women’s Film Festival (HFWFF), you can broaden your brand message through the 40,000 program guides distributed in the weeks leading up to, and during the festival.  You will also enjoy countless brand impressions directed to affluent film lovers through print, radio, TV, email, public relations, social media campaigns and on-screen advertising during our film screenings. Your company can sponsor a film, party or educational event, and even offer product samples or marketing handouts to our patrons. The sky is the limit!

Partnership with the HFWFF provides a cost-effective and efficient means to reach high value customers in a unique setting.  We’re happy to create a custom partnership package that excites you! Our patrons are well aware of our festival’s reliance on corporate partnership contributions to help make our events possible and they will acknowledge your commitment with their patronage to your business.
