Q: What does the cost include?

A: This cost covers the following resources and services:

  • Festival Tool Kit – a manual outlining everything you ever wanted to know about putting on a film festival! Includes a comprehensive event planning guide, timelines, strategies for increasing membership, promotional requirements, marketing and outreach strategies, tips for greening and dressing your event, and technical guidelines for your venue.
  • Access to films and information about the films
  • Opportunity to build your own film program chosen from our list of films (which can be found here: On Tour films). WSFF reviews more than 400 environmental films. About 70 films are selected to tour and from these you build-your-own program that includes up to 2.5 hours of films. Staff is on hand to assist with your selections and the order of your lineup.
  • Filmmaker contracts and fees, previously negotiated by Wild & Scenic team.
  • Film program packaged on to an easy to play, high quality Blu-ray.
  • Ability to chose a date that works best for your organization (you do not need a set date and venue to apply). We do not travel to your venue. Our turn-key program provides everything you need to host the event.
  • Event kits drop-shipped that include items from our eight National Partners: Patagonia, CLIF Bar, Sierra Nevada Brewing, Klean Kanteen, Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, Earthjustice, KEEN, and Orion Magazine.
  • Complete graphics package – includes all the collateral and templates for the promoting your event (poster, tickets, postcards, handbill, program, film stills, etc.).
  • Contacts for all the filmmakers. Filmmakers love to be invited to your event and are happy to do phone interviews on your local radio station!
  • On-line and on-call support from the festival’s tour manager.
