Lift - Off International Film Festivals Sponsorship document

  1. 1.      Introduction.    The  Lift-­‐Off  International  Festivals  run  at  four  locations;  London,  Liverpool,  Los  Angeles  and  Las  Vegas.  Each  Lift-­‐Off  event  is  staggered  throughout  the  year  to  fall  exactly  3  months  from  the  previous.    The  motto  of  the  festival  is  to  “look  beyond  the  gloss”.  We  pride  ourselves  on  showcasing  talent  that  has  the  root  of  the  story  at  the  forefront.  This  transatlantic  exchange  is  the  first  of  its  kind.  We  champion  student  and  independent  filmmakers  and  encourage  networking  across  the  water,  thus  creating  a  mini  film  network  of  our  own.    Successes.    Last  year  the  London  Lift-­‐Off  Festival  received  350  films  from  around  the  world  and  catered  to  an  audience  of  300  over  three  days  at  the  prestigious  Tricycle  Cinema  in  North  West  London.    This  year  the  festival  has  already  received  600  films,  still  with  three  months  to  go  before  the  event.  We  are  now  running  for  five  days  between  two  venues,  the  Tricycle  and  the  extremely  well  respected  Soho  Curzon  in  central  London.    From  it’s  own  merit  and,  with  hardly  any  outside  support  whatsoever,  the  festival  has  been  able  to  grow  exponentially  within  a  short  space  of  time.      Reaching  the  public.    We  reach  out  to  film  professionals  from  all  over  the  globe,  not  to  just  send  us  their  work  but  also  to  engage  with  us  through  the  judging  stages  by  being  members  of  our  panel  and  within  our  social  media  platforms.    We  operate  a  very  rigid  and  proven  strategy  within  our  social  media  channels.  Facebook  followers  has  increased  from  400  to  1400  likes,  and  twitter  is  in  the  region  of  500  followers.    Social  media  has  been  able  to  give  us  a  really  clear  idea  of  who  our  main  demographic  is.  Fans  of  the  festival  go  beyond  the  filmmakers  and  audience;  they  are  a  worldwide  community  of  independent  film  fans  that  support  our  message  globally.      Through  doing  a  simple  Facebook  search  we  can  see  that  there  are  still  many  more  hundreds  of  thousands  of  people  we  still  have  the  potential  in  reaching.      Our  demographic.    The  demographic  that  is  loyal  to  our  Lift-­‐Off  brand  is  split  70-­‐30  between  men  and  women.    The  main  UK  demographic  is  the  film  school  graduate  male,  22-­‐35,  alternative  lifestyle,  Guardian  reader  and  readit  subscriber.  Monthly  disposable  income  around  £400-­‐£500.  Living  in  the  South-­‐East,    Manchester  and  Liverpool  areas  predominantly.       2  Streatley  Road,  London,  England,  NW6  7LH.   www.londonlift-­‐   info@londonlift-­‐  
  2. 2.    The  future  of  the  festival.    We  aim  to  grow  in  our  current  form.  By  2013  we  aim  to  receive  1000  films  for  each  festival,  (4000  films  a  year  in  total),  we  aim  to  be  reaching  out  to  around  5000  individuals  who  are  interested  in  filmmaking  and  watching  independent  cinema.      At  the  three  year  mark  we  will  set  up  a  live  out  door  camping  event  over  three  days.  Talks  with  event  management  companies  have  already  started.  Here  we  will  create  the  UK’s  first  Film  Festival  that  is  organised  much  like  the  USA’s  Sundance,  where  we  plan  to  cater  for  twelve  thousand  young  people  from  across  Europe.    The  London  Lift-­‐Off  Foundation.  Bringing  the  power  of  film  through  cultural  education.    The Lift-Off Foundation is a UK not for profit organisation that focuses on educationand access to filmmaking in some of the most viciously war-torn countries on theplanet.
