Support Arpa International Film Festival

The annual Arpa International Film Festival is the brain child and signature event of Arpa Foundation for Film, Music & Art (AFFMA) Because AFFMA is a non-profit 501(c)3, our festival is only able to function through the generous donations and sponsorships from people and groups who care about independent cinema. Since 1995, our community has been supporting diverse local and international filmmakers, and other artists through Arpa International Film Festival. Volunteering for Arpa Film Festival will immerse you into the multi-dimensional world of film. From production, marketing, and red carpet, you will have many opportunities to get involved with our festival. Whether you would like to sponsor/donate, or help us on site and behind the scenes, we truly appreciate your support and encourage you to do so.

Become a Sponsor of Arpa International Film Festival

We are proud that our festival has solidified into the leading outlet in Hollywood for international cinema exploring pertinent issues like diaspora, war, genocide, dual identity, exile and multiculturalism — while inspiring our local and global community to connect and advance progressive cinematic art. This year’s 2017 Festival program has such exceptional works by established and emerging filmmakers that we added an extra festival day!

However, we need your support in order to continue growing our festival and its positive impact on the multinational film community. It is our hope that you are moved to join the Arpa Film Festival family and become a sponsor. As a 2017 Festival sponsor you will be integrated into our comprehensive multichannel marketing campaign, receiving media exposure, VIP passes and elite benefits to our sold out screenings and U.S. premieres, red carpet and special event photo ops showcasing your brand, attending private galas and receptions with named talent and filmmakers, and much more!

The Festival is under the umbrella of the Arpa Foundation for Film, Music & Art (AFFMA), a charitable, non-profit, tax-deductible organization registered as a 501(c)(3). So all sponsorships are 100% tax deductible.

Interested in learning about our sponsorship packages? Please email Sylvia Minassian and she will be happy to discuss sponsor opportunities and tailor a package to meet your marketing needs.

Whether it is a cash sponsorship or an in-kind, your sponsorship will help open doors for a inspiring community of filmmakers who are well-deserving of recognition by the coveted Hollywood community. We appreciate your support and welcome you to the Arpa International Film Festival family!

Without those donations – your donations – our Festival would not be able to continue to provide a gateway to up-and-coming filmmakers nor provide you with exposure to their films.
