Become a Sponsor!

As a nonprofit organization the Big Bear Film Festival has built many successful corporate partnerships throughout our 15 year history. From direct financial support to providing goods and services, there are many ways to make a tax-deductible contribution and provide your brand with significant marketing exposure. We gladly accept donations of in-kind trade, and recognize them for the equivalent of their retail value at the time of the festival. We would be happy to tailor a sponsorship proposal designed to meet your marketing objective and budget

Sponsorships are essential to the success of an event of this kind. Your contribution to the 15th Annual Big Bear Lake International Film Festival benefits the filmmakers, screenwriters, attendees as well as the community of Big Bear Lake. A thriving festival will have a significant economic impact on our community.

In 2013, BBLIFF partnered with more than 35 sponsors who benefitted from 4000+ brand impressions over the course of our three-day event. Our audience is a healthy mix of students, aspiring filmmakers, weekend visitors, and affluent film fans. Through partnering with BBLIFF past sponsors gained meaningful brand exposure while  supporting the talents of the next generation of filmmakers.
