Member Testimonials:

“It would not be exaggerating to say that the Spotlight Support Program helped elevate the experience at Horrible Imaginings Film Festival. Because the folks at Spotlight work so hard to find sponsors that are strong fits for us thematically, the sponsor messaging on display at the event was relevant and of interest to our audience. With the helpfulness of the team and the strong financial support of the sponsors they find, the partnership offered by the Spotlight Support Program is unparalleled!” Miguel Rodriquez, Director, Horrible Imaginings Film Festival

“The Spotlight Support Program has been indispensable for Other Worlds Austin, supplying us with an easily recognizable corporation that adds credibility to the festival to leverage with the rest of our sponsors, in addition to the always appreciated financial support.  The team is easy to work with and quick to respond to questions.  And someone in our audience told me they actually bought the car we featured two years in a row, so apparently it’s great for advertisers as well.” – Bears Rebecca Fonte, Founder/Director of Programming, Other Worlds Austin Sci Fi Film Festival
