SFDFF Advertising: 2024 Rates and Information

2024 marks the 15th anniversary of the San Francisco Dance Film Festival and we’d love for you to join us as an advertiser. Programming will take place throughout October with in-person events held at multiple venues including the Lucasfilm Premier Theater, Delancey Street Theater, Catharine Clark Gallery, and Brava Theater. 

Reserve your ad space in our 2024 festival program guide to join over 3,500 attendees in celebrating the best dance films from around the world. Our program guide is more than just a booklet; it’s a ticket to engage with a community of filmmakers, dance pros, and art enthusiasts where they are most receptive to marketing messages. 

When you secure a full-page ad in our program guide, you unlock exclusive benefits. Your logo will be featured on our website’s Supporters page along with an embedded link to your organization. Additionally, your logo will grab attention on the big screen during the festival’s pre-screening slideshows.

If you have any questions, please contact katherine@dancefilmsf.org
