I don’t think many businesses in Durango understand the importance of an overall marketing strategy. I think doing special events sponsorship is just as important as any advertising you do.
–2009 Sponsor

The Durango Independent Film Festival celebrates the courage of the independent filmmaker which cannot happen without your continued support. Thank you for keeping the spirit of independent film alive in our community. For sponsorship opportunities, please email Joanie Fraughton, Executive Director, at joanie@durangofilm.org.
