We have a variety of ongoing opportunities available. Foremost among them is the large scale official sponsorship of events such as our National Conference, a two-day event comprising film screenings and inspiring workshops which regularly attracts over 150 delegates from across the UK, and the Film Society of the Year Awards, which recognise and reward excellence in cultural and community cinema and attract high profile film industry speakers.

BRITISH STUDENT FILM FESTIVAL
British Student Film Festival is looking for partnership and patronage support. The festival has a tiered sponsorship programme, ranging from Festival Sponsor to Awards Sponsor. All sponsors receive prominent logo placement on promotional print and web materials. Similarly, opportunities for further exposure can be accommodated during the festival, including the screening of adverts at subsidised rates and the distribution of promotional materials. British Student Film Festival is a national exhibition of student work in Newcastle, Liverpool, Bristol and London, to be held in April 2012. The festival holds an uncompromising stance: that every film is screened and the entry requirements must be affordable. The festival will then culminate in an awards ceremony to celebrate the students' work and the winning films are announced. "We hope to not only help those filmmakers with a desire to enter the industry as a career but also to demonstrate the creativity and vision in each student. As an inclusive festival we aim to undermine any false standards to which their creativity has previously been held - we will not grade their vision. Awards will be provided for films which are exemplary in their execution, but the festival and our board of patrons defend the creative vision of each student filmmaker as unique and unquantifiable". Full sponsorship details and benefits are available on request. Contact: Francesca Creed. Address: 46 Keyes Road, London NW2 3XA. E-mail:

DISCOVERING LATIN AMERICA FILM FESTIVAL
The annual Discovering Latin America Film Festival ("DLA Film Festival") is London's largest Latin American film festival, comprising feature films, documentaries, shorts and film and culture events. It is both well established and critically reviewed: the 2010 festival (the ninth) ran from 18th - 28th November. All films are pre-viewed by the festival and programming directors and sent to critics prior to the festival for reviews. An audience award is conferred. The programme also includes retrospectives, shorts and an industry forum, for an overall total of fifty-one screenings. The festival is launched with a film screening and party in late September. Through this and other activities and events it organises, DLA, a non-governmental organisation (registered charity number 1106705) formed in London in August 2002 and composed of ninety volunteers from fifteen countries, collects funds to finance solidarity projects in Latin America. Past festivals have raised around £30,000 for charities in Mexico, Peru, Argentina and Colombia. Sponsors have the opportunity to reach a large audience interested in Latin American culture and in the arts. The festival has a target of 7,000+ viewers and 100,000+ website visits, with advertising reaching approximately six million readers. The DLA Film Festival's main audiences are young adults (46% 25-34 years old, 23% 35-44), and includes professionals and the well educated (60% ABC1, 15% graduate/post-graduate students); it is international and multicultural. The organisers are particularly interested in long term sponsors and are willing to work together to structure a sponsorship package appropriate for each. Various levels of sponsorship and benefits are available, with varying exposure throughout the festival and its marketing campaign. Media coverage plan: comprehensive advertising in major local and national newspapers and magazines to reach the target audience (Time Out, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Metro, the Evening Standard), over two weeks, with a total six million readership; specialist film and Latin American press; and national and local radio programmes. Other coverage includes the festival's own website and other associated sites; email and SMS databases; printed material (50,000 pieces); flyers, posters, catalogues; banners in cinema foyers (subject to arrangement with cinemas); and on-screen advertising, depending on agreement and technical formats.

FILMAID INTERNATIONAL UK
Communities in crisis need knowledge and empowerment. FilmAid provides both, to millions of people suffering the effects of war, poverty, displacement or disaster. Film screenings provide a way to reach many people at once, overcoming literacy boundaries, bringing forth information where it is needed and inspiring hope where it is lacking. Since 1999, FilmAid has worked in partnership with other global aid organizations to bring critical information to more than a million people, in places as diverse as Macedonia, Kenya, Tanzania, Afghanistan and the US Gulf Coast. FilmAid engages communities to shape the messages most needed for their survival and strength. The charity works with communities to create films and videos in their own voice, and to show these films in the most impactful and appropriate settings. FilmAid screenings range from intimate discussion of forty people to large outdoor screenings, reaching tens of thousands at one time. FilmAid UK is looking for sponsorship for fundraising events and more. Contact: Vicky Suzman. Address: 11 Thurloe Square, London SW7 2TA. Tel.: 0207 581 6546. E-mail: vicky@filmaid.org.

GREENPARK IMAGES
Greenpark Images has a unique film archive of UK social history going back to the 1950s. Since there is a growing national concern about the need for teenagers to appreciate the importance of Respect and Responsibility and their role in society as citizens, the company has recently started using its film archive to produce a series of educational courseware modules on DVD, for classroom use in the teaching of Key Stage 3 Citizenship in UK schools. The first module, on the subject of "Respect", which provides illustrations from earlier decades for use in classroom discussion, has been produced in collaboration with staff and students at a secondary school, with the support of a small Strategic Commissioning Educational Grant from MLA South West. It is proving very popular with teachers and students who have used it and Greenpark Images is now embarking on producing the next DVD module, about Responsibility, in a similar format, also with a small grant from MLA South West. The company is keen to begin to market these modules nationally to all secondary schools for their Citizenship classes, but this will require about £15,000 in additional funding for each module for marketing, distribution and the clearance of rights. They are therefore keen to find a sponsor who would be interested in being associated with this project and, ideally, provide complementary opportunities to promote awareness of the courseware and of the important topics covered. They are also seeking a sponsorship partner to work with to identify other imaginative ways of using their film archive for educational and informational projects.

KALA PHOOL
Kala Phool is an arts development agency that strives to make diverse artforms accessible, fun and low cost. Currently not core funded, Kala Phool needs financial support from like-minded organisations that want to work with it. Projects Kala Phool develops and delivers include the Brighton Hip Hop Festival, which boasts a position as the UK's largest celebration of Hip Hop culture. Kala Phool currently works globally with existing and emerging partners, as well as those from across the UK, pushing the boundaries in making all the artforms under the Hip Hop 'banner' visible. The festival is keen to have sponsors come and support their vision - they are open to more than one supporter.     Mother India 21st Century Remix - this project is currently under development and involves the rescoring of the iconic and Oscar award winning Indian epic, Mother India. It will be produced using the talent of the world's top Turntablist, bringing the film to a fresh new audience with India and Pakistan's independence as its inspiration.     Frieze Box - imagine, a box covered in canvas in the middle of your town, school or on a roundabout, with artists working on it in rotation. This is the concept and currently Frieze Box is being developed to work with younger people, in schools and with national festivals. It's a way of taking the art to the people and allowing them to have a go. Quality is foremost in Kala Phool's visioning and the agency works with the best of the best, the most respected and credible artists ... but also in their own right they value Kala Phool's work. Kala Phool works to support under-developed artform sectors that may not necessarily have a voice. It advocates on strategic, national and international levels with a variety of agencies.

AF/0021 ODD BOY FILM
Odd Boy Film offers the opportunity to sponsor a short film based on the poem My Black Skin, written by Nicholas Pinnock. The film is inspired by Black History Month in October 2011. "We are looking for a small amount of sponsorship to enable us to go into production. The piece is primarily a 'talking heads' in style, but with more movement, shot in black and white and with a fairly loose camera style. The length of the piece will be approximately three minutes. Throughout the film we intercut between different people: men, women and children from all walks of life, unknown, known and well-known from all over England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, reciting either a word, a line or a verse from the poem. We will see these people in the various locations where they live or work, so as to get across the feeling that the people the poem refers to, and is for, are those who are these people - everyday people from different walks of life, that do different things and may have different levels of reference/relevance in the piece, but that all share a common bond: the fact that black skin is important to them. Intercut into the poem will be film and pictures of iconic people from history: Malcolm X, Nelson Mandela, Sidney Poitier, William Wilberforce, JFK, Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens and Abraham Lincoln. We will feature a black albino and someone doing sign language; a foreign language speaker; and someone with limited abilities, so that as many people as possible will be represented by, and will identify with, the piece. We also feel it necessary to include people from other races with an established link to black culture, either through what they do for/with the black community or if they are linked to it through marriage or are parents to black, mixed race children. Our aim is have two to three charities on board, such as the ACLT and the Skin Cancer Research Fund, to help raise awareness. We will look to submit to broadcast by the end of October. Please invest in a worthwhile creative and social piece". Contact: Ryan Elliott. Address: 6b Friern Road, London SE22 0AT. Tel.: 0044 7976727611. E-mail:

    AF/0022     ORKNEY ISLANDS FILMS
Orkney Islands Films is a non-profit making organisation which makes micro-budget movies in the Orkney area, giving people the opportunity to learn about digital film making. They are collaborating with the Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service in a Community Partnership Initiative, making a short drama which highlights the importance of a fully maintained smoke alarm. Once the drama has been completed they intend to have it classified by the British Board of Film Classification for both theatrical release and DVD release. They will then 'gift' the film to the Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service so they can use the drama in one of their campaigns. Orkney Islands Films is looking for sponsors to cover the costs of travel, accommodation and food for actors and crew, buying props and classification from the BBFC. The reason they need to cover the cost of the actors' and crews' travel and accommodation, etc. is that they are based on a small island and the actors and crew will have to stay on the island for a two week shoot. "The amount we are looking for is £3,500. None of the actors, crew or any member of Orkney Islands Films will receive payment for their work on the drama. The funds are to cover the cost of expenses. We do not want to ask the HIFRS to fund the drama as it will take away much needed funds from other areas. In return for sponsorship, sponsors will have a credit and their company logo placed at the end of the completed movie, as well as a credit on our website and the knowledge that they are not only helping a new, non-profit organisation gain a reputation in the film making industry, but also their sponsorship may save someone's life".
