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). We are a non-profit 501(c)3, dedicated to cultivating cultural understanding and global empathy by creating a dynamic forum for international cinema. Over the past 20 years, the festival has bridged cultural divides by fostering dialogue among people of diverse backgrounds. By showcasing local and international films that explore critical issues such as war, genocide, diaspora, dual identities, exile and multiculturalism, Arpa International Film Festival has solidified its role in safeguarding films that continue to make a social impact.

Our success is contingent on the generous donations and sponsorships from individuals and groups who value the importance of supporting independent cinema.

Become a Sponsor of the 20th Annual Arpa International Film Festival and Awards Gala Banquet

This year’s 20th Arpa International Film Festival is once again delivering a dynamic set of local and international films from established and emerging filmmakers. One of our main objectives this coming year will be to facilitate internships for students pursuing film careers. This will be in addition to the numerous grants awarded each year to up and coming filmmakers.

Our milestone celebration includes a fabulous Awards Gala Banquet at the Loews Hollywood Hotel on November 5th where we will be honoring music icon Chris Cornell (in memoriam), Oscar-winning director Terry George (The Promise, The Shore, Hotel Rwanda, In the Name of the Father), actor Carl Weathers (Rocky, Predator, Happy Gilmore) and Oscar-winning screenwriter Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman), with special performances by thereminist Armen Ra and vocalist Mister X.

Your support is crucial in helping us grow our festival and continue to make an impact on the multinational film community. It is our hope that you will be inspired to join the Arpa International Film Festival family by becoming a sponsor.

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), thereby making all sponsorships 100% tax deductible.
