Get Involved

Without your continued support, HFI would not be possible. Whether it is through volunteering, donation, or corporate sponsorship for special events and programs, you can help HFI achieve its goal of empowering, educating and funding student and independent filmmakers.



Why sponsor Haydenfilms Institute?

Haydenfilms Institute is devoted to promoting quality partnerships through its innovative, content-driven online presence. HFI’s influential media outlets, such as the Online Film Festival and partner channels, provide sponsors with the means to generate a greater level of synergy between the sponsor’s marketing objectives and promotional media branding. HFI aims to create ongoing brand equity with its sponsors alongside its unique initiatives.


Youth Media Initiative

HFI’s Youth Media Initiative is a rich learning and life-changing experience for at-risk teens. Sponsorships opportunities may include, but are not limited to, YMI workshops, lab and classroom supplies, and production/editing needs.

Online Film Festival

HFI’s innovative Online Film Festival aims to spread the presence and impact of independent films. Sponsoring the Festival will afford you a connection with a premiere online festival and an integral role in the festival's continued expansion and success. Benefits include exposure of your brand to a highly desirable demographic and key consumer alignment.

Workshops and Labs

Your sponsorship of HFI’s Workshops and Labs will help HFI give its students a maximum quality experience with maximum quality materials. Your contribution will help supplement various administrative fees, program expenses, curriculum development and instruction, and associated technologies.

Commercial Camp

Sponsoring organizations of HFI’s filmmaking camps will be afforded the opportunity to have a high-quality, 30-second commercial produced for them by the camp’s students in exchange for a level of support. Sponsorship of HFI’s filmmaking camps will foster a constructive partnership between your organization, HFI, and the camp’s participants.
