sponsor opportunities

“What I didn’t know until this weekend is that the place is so lovely – in autumn, the Aspen leaves are a rhapsody in gold – and that the town puts on a wonderful film festival... Aspen Filmfest is a gracious, human-scale antidote to industrial-strength festivals like Sundance, Cannes, and Toronto.”- John Powers, Vogue about Filmfest 2009.
