Sponsorship

2Asset 2@2x

IWFF works closely with each of our sponsors to make sure that the festival is beneficial to your media plan and a bright spot every April for your employees or clients. 

IWFF had a fabulous 2019 festival with 9,297 engaged attendees watching wildlife and environmental documentaries. We screened films to over 3,000 children at our Youth Matinee program. Our highly successful IWFF LABS Fellows completed four impactful short films that deliver inspiring stories of the good work within Missoula’s conservation and scientific community. 

We were supported by over 80 sponsoring businesses in 2019 and look forward to working with you in 2020!

"We were especially inspired by how the festival managed to engage the local community, families, youth, and university in the festival. It was empowering and created hope for our wildlife and our planet.”

- Pipaluk Lykke, IWFF Filmmaker
