Align your brand with the top documentary award at EIFF in June 2010.
This sponsorship offers an association with one of the UK's leading film festivals, an international brand in celebration of excellence and diversity in film. EIFF has positioned itself as a festival of discovery and new talent, seeking out the most daring and diverse new work from around the world. The Best Documentary Award recognises a singular and compelling achievement in the field of non-fiction filmmaking. It honours work that reveals a fascination with a particular subject, rendered on screen with style, truthfulness and integrity to its sources.
Sponsorship of The Best Documentary Award will raise your brand profile amongst a young, affluent ABC1 audience, and will allow association with an International festival brand hailed by The Observer as 'hip, bright and cheeky'.
The introduction of this Award combines EIFF's origins as a documentary festival, our reputation as the primary non-specialised festival for documentary programming in the UK and as a discoverer of original and innovative work. Each year EIFF screen many documentaries that go on to be acquired by theatrical distributors or by television buyers. The winning documentary is selected by a jury of three individuals from different disciplines- filmmakers, critics, writers, actors, producers and technicians. The award sponsor will have branding rights, press and PR opportunities.
Previous sponsor of the Best Documentary Award includes Sky Movies.
This is the fifth consecutive year of this title award, and there are numerous benefits for a sponsor, including corporate entertaining and PR and Press opportunities in conjunction with EIFF's international PR agency. Sponsorship of the Best Documentary Award offers an association with one of the UK's leading film festivals, an international brand in celebration of excellence and diversity in film. There is an opportunity to also sponsor one of the newer awards; Best International Feature Film, (cost £10,000) and a Best International Short Film Award (cost £5,000).
