Additional Sponsorship Opportunities:
In 2018, many colleges, universities and brands requested additional opportunities to connect with Festival attendees beyond the traditional experience. These integrations were a huge hit, and we are happy to announce that we’ll be offering a variety of unique sponsorship opportunities for the 2019 All American High School Film Festival providing increased exposure throughout the weekend. Please find below a detailed description of each opportunity as well as the cost of the activation. If you are looking for integrations that come with the Premier College Fair Package please click here.
We will accept these integrations on a first come, first served basis. If a sponsorship opportunity is claimed and/or unavailable it will be marked (CLAIMED). If the opportunity you were looking to sponsor is currently unavailable please consider one of our many other options! We also have custom integrations available. If you are interested in a custom sponsorship opportunity please email Becca@aahsff.com.
