Support the Festival

Help Make It Happen!


Over the past 17 years, the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival has established itself as a major film event in the Mid-Atlantic region. Each year, many sponsors and an army of volunteers join the Rehoboth Beach Film Society to create an amazing five-day cultural experience not typically found in a non-metropolitan setting.

This award-winning, multi-day event sells over 15,000 tickets to film enthusiasts from more than twenty states. At a time when many businesses are preparing to close for the season or are experiencing reduced traffic, the Festival attracts visitors whose spending provides an economic boost comparable to a summer weekend.

The Festival relies on the generous support of local businesses and individuals to provide a quality experience that benefits the community, the visitors who attend, and local businesses as well. Please consider the ways you can contribute to make each year’s Festival a success!

Host a Film

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society invites businesses and individuals to host a film at the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival. Fund a screening at the Festival and receive:

  • Host name listed in the Festival program (8,000 print run plus online edition on RBFS website)
  • Two complimentary tickets to attend the selected screening
  • Opportunity to introduce the film and distribute business promotional materials to the audience (up to 300 people)

Hosting a film can be a unique way to celebrate a milestone occasion (graduation, anniversary, birthday) or honor the memory of someone special. It makes a thoughtful gift. This marketing opportunity is also an affordable way to support the RBFS, a non-profit arts organization that has a solid 18-year history of bringing thousands of visitors to the area in the off-season by offering quality programs.

Registration to host a film for the 2016 Festival is now closed.

Advertise in the Festival Program

Each year the Rehoboth Beach Film Society encourages orgainizations to advertise in the program guide. The Festival attracts thousands of visitors from more than twenty states for a multi-day event in November.

Ads reach these eager consumers as they pore over the pages of the full-color, information-filled, highly designed, and expertly printed publication. Programs are distributed in advance throughout Delaware and to select areas in the Mid-Atlantic region, and are constantly referred to during the Festival.

Ads are also included in the online edition, available on the RBFS website.

Ad sales begin in early summer. July 31 is the final deadline for ad submissions.
