The nationally recognized Waterfront Film Festival offers many exciting opportunities for Sponsors. As a Sponsor, you will be part of a celebration of films and filmmakers!

The Festival is professionally promoted to draw a large nationwide audience, with thousands coming from Chicago, Detroit, Grand Rapids and the greater MidWest region. Our Oscar Experience® Party is one of only 50 official parties in the nation and is sanctioned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Sponsorship opportunities are designed to meet the needs of companies of all sizes and types, as well as individuals. Sponsorship packages are tailored to assure that your company is reaching its target audience while being recognized for its support of the arts. There are also opportunities for individuals that simply want to rub elbows with the filmmakers and be treated like a VIP.
