Apply now for the 2019/2020 Spotlight Support Program

The popular Spotlight Support Program is back for the 2019/2020 festival season, sponsored by Spotlight Cinema Networks.

The Spotlight Support Program is a great way for FFA members to generate self-earned revenue by leveraging unused/underused screen time during their events. This is a turnkey revenue generating opportunity offered exclusively to U.S. film festivals that are Film Festival Alliance Organizational members.

FFA Member Testimonials:

“For the past two years the Spotlight Support Program has been a great new addition to the Woods Hole Film Festival. The Spotlight team works hard to make sure that the spot they provide us aligns with the Festival. They look great on screen and help elevate the Festival screening experience for the audience. They truly care about Festivals and they are a pleasure to work with.” –  Judy Laster, Festival Director, Woods Hole Film Festival

“Spotlight Cinema Networks partnership has been a great support of our festival. They are great to work with and will help find the best fit for your festival. Every festival is always looking for more revenue so when a company genuinely wants to work with you AND pay you a fair amount, it is incredibly appreciated.” – Adam Howell, Director of Operations, Heartland International Film Festival

“The Spotlight Support Program provided an ad that fits seamlessly with the environmental message of our film festival, and the team was easy to work with. We look forward to working with them again in the future!”  —Debra Wolf Goldstein, Executive Director, Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival

“We’ve been fortunate to work with the Spotlight Support Program for the past several years for the New Orleans Film Festival. Not only is it a reliable source of extra revenue for festival operations, but they’re also one of the easiest partners to do business with. They work with tons of film festivals, so they fully understand our needs. They are professional, straightforward, and uncomplicated—couldn’t ask for more in a partner.” –Clint Bowie, Artistic Director, New Orleans Film Society
