Keeping It Local
Donations of goods and services help us share the things we love and do best here at home with festival visitors and guests. And businesses that offer special festival rates for core festival operations are valued custom sponsors.
Delicious local food and beverages ensure the success of these important festival fundraisers, making for the best possible celebrations throughout the week. Decorations and other items are needed for parties, too.
Filmmaker Loft and Green Rooms
Help our visiting filmmakers enjoy their stay with donations to our filmmaker loft and green rooms. Our filmmaker loft is home to a swank bar and lounge, creating a great spot to relax. Our volunteers and sponsors set up comfortable green rooms inside each indoor venue to provide a waiting area for visiting festival filmmakers and guests.
Gift Bags for Guests
Help us show off TC with the 100 welcome bags we will prepare this year for visiting filmmakers, actors, and industry guests.

Official Schedule Release Guide
Advertising in our late June schedule release announcement guide allows us to spread exciting news about the festival to more than 79,000 people across the region at no additional expense to the TCFF. This highly-anticipated first look at the festival makes it easy for filmgoers to plan the movies and events they want to attend and will be inserted into every copy of the Northern Express, giving it more readers than ever before.
Official Program Guide
Advertising in the glossy official souvenir program guide allows us to provide over 25,000 festival attendees with a keepsake that visitors rely on and reference at the festival and as a film guide throughout the year at home.
We are happiest when we can tailor your experience to meet your needs. And we are always thrilled to accept major gifts on behalf of our educational and cultural mission.
