MIF works closely with a wide array of local, national and multinational sponsors and partners, all of which help us to realise our unrivalled programme of world premieres and special events. Some organisations support every aspect of what we do, while others lend financial assistance and professional expertise to specific projects.

The success of MIF depends on the generosity of such businesses, and from the kind support we receive from local and national public funders. We’re hugely grateful to all our partners for their help and collaboration.

We offer potential sponsors an exciting array of sponsorship and partnership opportunities. Our bespoke packages will closely integrate your brand with an event that The New York Times recently described as ‘an important player on the international stage’, while also providing you and your company with a rich variety of marketing benefits, entertaining opportunities and staff premiums.

To learn how you can join the organisations below and support us in the run-up to MIF17, please contact Rachel Green, MIF’s Development Director, on +44 (0)161 817 4516 or rachel.green@mif.co.uk.
