There are nine levels of sponsorship starting at $250 and going through $25,000+. Five of those levels (starting with Silver) include some number of VIP passes. The Silver level includes up to 2 passes while the Film Circle level includes up to 8 passes. The VIP passes grant access to sponsor events, meals and the reserved for sponsor seating in the Virginia theater. The Patron level provides access to sponsor events but not meals or the VIP seating area.
All levels of sponsorship provide some business advertising opportunities at Ebertfest and in Ebertfest publications. The higher sponsorship levels, of course, provide more extensive visibility for you or your company.
