GWIFF invites your organization to partner with us to publicize this groundbreaking festival and to draw as many people as possible to the film showings. Partners promote the festival to their networks via social media, e-newsletters, email lists, and publications. While we always appreciate in kind or financial contributions to help make this event a success, partners are not required to do so.
