Salem Film Fest 2017

Become a 2018 Sponsor

Support the Largest Documentary Film Festival in Massachusetts

Some of the benefits available to your business / organization through your support of the festival:

  • Great marketing to a fantastic audience of over 6,500 dedicated and motivated attendees
  • A print, on-line and social media campaign that links you to tens of thousands of readers, friends and viewers
  • Direct linkage to one or more of the documentaries and filmmakers
  • A tremendous amount of goodwill from our local and worldwide community of supporters and filmmakers

Your participation supports:

  • The sustainability of Salem Film Fest – a non-profit organization, run mostly by volunteers
  • Our unique artist-friendly festival model, which waives the submission fees that film festivals typically charge, and instead pays filmmakers honorariums, and provides hospitality, food, and transportation
  • Local filmmaker initiatives such as Mass Reality Check (a shorts program for college students), Five Minute Student Documentary Contest (for high school students), and The Doc-a-chusetts Pitch (filmmakers pitch their works-in-progress)
  • Free filmmaker forums and gatherings throughout the fest

Producer Level Sponsorship


Screening Underwriter Level Sponsorship


Award Level Sponsorship – A new category of sponsorship for 2018!

For the first time we are offering the opportunity of naming rights to our awards. Sponsor’s name will be listed on the actual award (an original artwork by a local artist), in our official program, and on social media mentions. A representative of the sponsor can present the award after the film’s screening at the fest if the filmmaker is attending. Your contribution pays for a local artist to create the award trophy, a stipend to the filmmaker, and a tax-deductible contribution to SFF.
