Why Sponsor Imagine Science Films?

Imagine Science Films (ISF) is a 5-year old non-profit organization that promotes a high-level dialogue between scientists and filmmakers. It aims to make accurate science engaging and accessible to everyone, not only through the annual film festival, but with Programs including Film Lab, Scenes, Artists in Residence, the Guest Country Initiative and ISF Satellite reaching audiences around the world.

Unlike other film festival organizations, ISF’s outreach programs, satellite festivals, and special events continue throughout the year—which means a long boom of media mentions, spotlights, and listings for sponsors.

Film Sponsorship is a powerful means of communicating with the scientists, artists, filmmakers and media-aware generation that sees cinema as a highly regarded medium of science communication and entertainment.

Imagine Science Films prides itself on building lasting relationships with its sponsors and also offers multi-year sponsorship agreements. We create one-of-a-kind opportunities for Sponsors to own key elements of the Festival, while simultaneously developing sponsor connections with industry professionals, filmmakers, scientists, and audiences from around the world.
