Sponsorship Opportunities

The Christian Worldview Film Festival was started in 2014 by the non-profit ministry Media Talk 101 to encourage Christian Filmmakers in their Biblical worldview and the craft of filmmaking. Our fifth annual event will be held March 12th-17th, 2018 in Franklin, TN. This 6 day event will feature over 20 speakers who will give over 40 unique workshops on Christian filmmaking and we anticipate screening over 70 Christian films which will play on five different screens. The week will end by honoring exceptional films with 13 different awards and cash prizes at our awards ceremony. The Film Festival had nearly 1000 registered attendees in 2017 and we anticipate more in attendance for 2018.

We were able to provide a fantastic conference for the last four years at a reasonable price and this was made possible by a network of over 100 volunteers, event sponsors, vendors, and the hard work from the small staff at Media Talk 101. Please take a moment to watch the highlights video on the front page of www.cwvff.com if you have not done so already.

There are five categories for sponsors to get involved.
      1. Scholarship Fund
      2. Charitable Donors
      3. Advertising Sponsors
      4. Printed Program Advertising
      5. Commercial Spot Advertising


1.     Scholarship Fund

We endeavor to keep the cost to attendees as low as possible but even that can sometimes be out of reach for individuals or families. Your donation of any amount can help offset the cost of registration or allow them to attend free of charge. Donate here.


2.     Charitable Donors

For those who are not necessarily looking for an advertising opportunity but would like to support this important event we would be glad to acknowledge your support and our appreciation during the awards ceremony or if you would prefer to remain anonymous we will gratefully acknowledge the anonymous donors who help make this event possible.   Media Talk 101 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donation is a tax deductible gift. Checks can be mailed to Media Talk 101, P.O. Box 201, Mt. Carroll, IL 61053 or online donations can be made at MEDIATALK101.ORG

4.     Printed Program Advertising

The 2018 Christian Worldview Film Festival and Filmmakers Guild will have a full- color multi-page program for all registered attendees and this will be made possible by sponsors like you! Film festival programs are often saved as keepsakes by festival attendees which is a plus for advertisers. The bigger plus is that the price for a full page ad is ridiculously low! Spots are limited so be sure to apply for your ad space soon. To see a digital copy of our 2017 Printed Program click this link.
Please Contact us for more details.

5.     Commercial Spot Advertising

Put your still or video ad in front of over 1000 people in one or more of the Festival’s 10 screening blocks. Each block will include all five screens so your ad will be seen by everyone at the festival. Choose from a number of screen blocks and time lengths to make sure your ad gets the exposure you are looking for at a price that works for you.
Please contact us for more details.
