BLACKSTAR FILM FESTIVAL

August 4-7, 2016

Advertise at the 2016 Festival!

The 2016 BlackStar Film Festival is expected to attract nearly 4,000 participants through its promotional marketing and strategic partnerships with national and regional sponsors. During this four-day event, the official Program Guide provides information on the films, programs, and parties and is a wonderful opportunity to advertise products and services to our diverse audience. The Festival attracts an audience with highly desirable demographics. Patrons are a mix of upscale, sophisticated filmgoers from across the United States and other corners of the world.

BlackStar has two major advertising opportunities that allow your organization or business to reach our large and diverse audience. The first is through the purchase of print ad space in our high quality, full-color program guide. The second is a digital ad onscreen in the theater before film and educational programs.

Print

Deadline: June 17, 2016

Circulation: We print 2,000 copies of our magazine-style program guide, which features original articles, film reviews, and photographs. Take a look at last year’s guide. The majority of those printed are distributed locally; however copies are circulated nationally and internationally to filmmakers, production companies, other film festivals, distributors, broadcasters, and sponsors.
