Sponsors Save the Day!
by Kelly M. Desmore, Producer/Senior Programmer of CIFF California:
In the Fall of 2010, our first season of The Chico Independent Film Festival, came about with comedy in tow. Second season, we went into our own film productions, third season we went international…fourth, we are globally accepted in art. 5th Season is the balance of the first series films, and how the future will be shaped. Our 6th Season is new and vibrant, with an incredible venue! Yes, locally we are known for our films, teaching and multimedia.
Internationally we are known for Gone With The Wind, and Robin Hood and Chicogames.com. But it was time to reconnect with our roots of over 100 years of shooting film in Northern California’s Gold Country, we do live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
In 1989 the film school ended at Chico State(the oldest State College in California, 125 years old).
Independent Film has given us a chance to combine with our community, in a way that a larger City could not support or have the closeness we seem to possess.
Local Sponsors saved the day, and they saw our vision from the beginning. Since theater costs and marketing takes most of the money in our organization, we have combined with other venues that will always be there even if the traditional film houses are not. You need to always think ahead, and if a filmmaker cancels a film that is important, moving the venue may be the right call.
Over 6 and a half years later, and over 40 local sponsors/and 9 international sponsors to date…our town is waking up and ready to shoot. Trust and value is the key formula. Also, not offering more than we can provide in service is of primary concern to our audience.
We gave all the Sponsors free VIP Passes, to all music and film. It worked. Though attendance is growing, the first few years were still relating locally and building trust. Some do agree a Film Festival is good for the economy, long-term.
CIFF California has learned the whole time how to re-do, re-use and renew. That is what it takes in this economy, and a big heart.
