We are overwhelmed with all of the positive feedback and excitement about our recent Okanagan International Festival of Animation (OkIFA) launch announcement. Thank you so much for your kind words, your promises to come to our festival, and especially to those of you who called, texted and e-mailed about sponsorship. We are incredibly grateful for your support.
Now that we’ve “gone public,” there is so much to do to get ready for our inaugural festival in October 2017. And that includes rounding out our lineup of already committed (and amazing) sponsor organizations. We are so fortunate to have these sponsors already on board:
- Platinum Sponsors: Centre for Arts and Technology and Toon Boom
- Gold Sponsor: Capilano University
- Silver Sponsors: AWN, Roketto, Okanagan Film Commission, Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission, Westcorp, The Trophy Den, Source Office Furnishings, Canadian Animation Resources and Creative BC
Great sponsors make a great festival and OkIFA 2017 is going to be amazing. Some of the benefits for sponsors include signage at a Festival venue, the opportunity to provide material and items for delegate bags, complimentary passes, screening films from your students at the student party, the promotion of your hiring criteria on our website, booth and presentation at Student/Recruitment Day, title sponsorship of a day, title sponsorship of a session, title sponsorship of a social event and so much more. If you would like to learn more about our sponsorship opportunities, we’d love to connect with you. Click here to contact us.
This blog will provide regular updates on the plans for the festival, will showcase our sponsors, our festival team and board, and will bring you all of the announcements and news about OkIFA.
The website offers you the opportunity to let us know what you would like to see at the festival. If you have ideas, would like to be a sponsor, or would like to volunteer in some capacity, please let us know.
Thanks again to everyone for embracing OkIFA. The animation and digital media communities are the best!
