SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES / COMMUNITY PARTNERS



THE VALUE OF COMMUNITY 
The Cinema Paradiso Art Houses wouldn't be what they are without the continued involvement of its community partnerships and annual Sponsors. We are constantly looking for new ways to be a part of our community as well as ways to assist our community in better brand exposure. Read below for ways to get involved and increase the awareness of your organization and brand. 

WHY SUPPORT? 


The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival

Now entering its 30th consecutive year (Florida's oldest, under the original charter), FLIFF is known around the world.  With governmental grants diminishing (reduced nearly 75% over the past two years) and corporate marketing programs vanishing, now more than ever, FLIFF and Cinema Paradiso need cash support to maintain the current level of programming.

Among the numerous superlatives supporting FLIFF

  • Top rated film festival in the State (Florida Arts Council)
  • Top Tourist Related Project (Broward Cultural Division)
  • Longest Film Festival in the world (Guinness World Records)
  • Only Film Festival in the South to win four major grants from The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Science
  • Received the Golden Orange Award from The Florida Film Critics Circle for our service to the South Florida community immediately following Hurricane Wilma
  • Winner of the Moretti Award for Artistic Excellence
  • One of five Major Cultural Institutions of Broward County

Why support is still needed

FLIFF is the only touring motion picture event in the southeast United States.  In addition to the 65,000+ that attend the Festival and year-round events at Cinema Paradiso, FLIFF has also presented movies in cities and towns throughout Florida (Key West, Miami, Miami Beach, Doral, Coconut Grove, Aventura, Bay Harbor Islands, Plantation, Weston, Davie, Deerfield Beach, Pompano, Oakland Park, Sunrise, Wilton Manors, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Fort Myers, Labelle, Immokalee, Krome Detention Center, St Augustine, Amelia Island, Tallahassee).
