11. I’m interested in being a sponsor, who should I be in touch with and when?
The film committee begins meeting early in the New Year to start organizing that summer’s series. We ask all potential new sponsors to reach out to us via email (redhookflicks@gmail.com) to register your interest by no later than February 1st of that year.

12. I reached out in the past, why do I have to register my interest again?
The film committee is a volunteer group of local residents pulling this together in our free time and our membership rolls shift every year.  To ensure your interest is properly noted and considered, we ask potential new sponsors to reach out to us again at the start of the planning season.

13. How do you choose your sponsors?
We’re fortunate enough to often have more parties interested in sponsorships than we can realistically utilize. Priority goes to returning organizations who’ve been there with us from the beginning. For all other potential new sponsors, the committee weighs the slate of options at the beginning of the planning season to determine our needs and what offers can be put to the most effective use.

14. Are there other ways to be involved?

The committee is always looking for help. Please email us at redhookflicks@gmail.com about volunteering.
