Product Placement

Let your brand do the talking with many of our product placement opportunities at various venues and events. Opportunities are available in exclusive and non-exclusive categories:

  • Sampling in gift bags, festival lounge, special events and parties
  • Product display and activation
  • Opportunity to increase sales with attendees

In addition to financial sponsorship, a wide variety of opportunities exist to create a sponsorship uniquely tailored to the donor’s particular interest or needs. A named giving opportunity sends a strong message to the community that an individual or business has loaned their name to the efforts of TCFF to celebrate and honor the art of film, and educate the next generation of filmmakers in our community.

The following list will give you an idea of some of the naming opportunities available with recognition at the corresponding sponsorship level (click here for standard sponsorship benefits matrix). Higher levels of sponsorship would require an addition investment:

Title Sponsor
Red Carpet
Theatre Sponsor
Festival Lounge
Opening Night
Centerpiece Screening
Closing Night Screening
Educational Panels
Festival Lounge Party

In addition, we welcome the opportunity to work directly with donors to create other naming opportunities that might be more closely aligned with their special areas of interest.

This is merely a glimpse into how your company can partner with TCFF whether that is for the annual Twin Cities Film Fest or year-round opportunities. We would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you and your team to further discuss these and many other sponsorships in more detail.

Our goal is to customize a package that is a win-win for your company, the Festival and its thousands of attendees. For additional information, please email Danielle.Palmer@twincitiesfilmfest.org.
