What is the Creatively Connected
Online Film Festival and Why Now?

Over one-third of American adults are lonely, according to a recent study by the AARP. That number has nearly doubled since the 1980s, making it one of today’s public health crises.  For the general population, the negative health effects of loneliness are comparable to those associated with smoking.

Ironically, society is increasingly linked through social media, yet simultaneously losing a personal sense of connection, relevance, and belonging.

The Creatively Connected Online Film Festival— a contest, public health outreach conference, evening celebration, and online showcase— creates a megaphone for all voices and stories to be heard and celebrated to generate authentic connections and community. It is an opportunity to go deeper into revealing and sharing our human stories, to celebrate those who have found ways to move forward and to admire and applaud the power of creative expression and its unique ability to reveal deep and meaningful truths and to bring us together authentically and enduringly.

A Unique Sponsorship Opportunity

We invite your organization to join us by becoming a sponsor of this special inaugural event. Select from a wide range of visibility opportunities for your brand, including promotional collateral, our website, email campaigns, social media platforms, press releases, webinars, special events, speaking engagements, merchandising, and more.

Which Audiences are Important to You?

The Festival will attract filmmaker professionals, students, and amateurs.  As you consider brand alignment, submissions  will focus on six key themes:

  • Older Adults
  • Those with Major Illness
  • Caregivers
  • Veterans/Military and Families
  • Young Adults/Adolescents
  • LGBT
  • Immigrant Experience

Traditional & Online Screening Platforms to Showcase the Work

The Festival is a contest, online showcase, public health outreach conference, and evening celebration rolled into one and launching May 9 in New York City.

We’ll share diverse, inspiring stories of those who have found ways to move forward through the challenges of loneliness and isolation. The Festival offers wide audiences an invitation to appreciate and benefit from the power of creative expression and bring us together.

Put Your Brand in the Spotlight

With an estimated one million viewers expected to see the Festival and related online material (in conjunction with our network of strategic partners), we provide a number of visibility opportunities to suit your needs and interests. Each sponsorship tier includes branding, social media, inclusion in the program guide and sponsor trailer, plus tickets to the premiere event on May 9 in New York City.  Choose from the tiers below, or contact us to discuss ideas for a customized sponsorship tailored to your brand strategies.
