Sponsorship Options


Big Island Film Festival has been blessed with growing participation by film lovers and film makers. Along with that growth is expanded sponsorship by Hawaii Island businesses and individuals. We invite you to become a part of this community event that hosts and honors new independent filmmakers from Hawaii and around the world.

Our sponsorship opportunities come in many shapes and sizes so that this event will become community based. As creators and producers of this project, we see our role as the people who put this giant puzzle together each year. A non-profit fiscal agent assists with securing a Hawaii County CPEP grant each year which supports the equipment needed. The rest of the project is produced through donations, advertising sales, in-kind donations, and sponsorships. The following list shows some of the ways a business or individual might choose to become a part of the Big Island Film Festival ohana:
