SIFF serves the community by offering our cinemas for film premieres, special events, and other programs on a rental basis.

Partnering with filmmakers, artists, nonprofit organizations, and community film festivals is key to our mission: to create experiences that bring people together around film. Through SIFFsupports, we provide benefits such as discounted rental rates, ticketing, marketing opportunities, co-branding, and technical support to select partners. We believe in a strong film community full of diverse voices and perspectives.
