Dear Community Members and Business Owners of the Mad River Valley,

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., the MountainTop Film Festival offers a diverse program of documentary and dramatic films, addressing social and environmental issues from around the world.

In this critical time for the whole word - politically, economically, environmentally, we as citizens of the world need to make our voices heard and set a tone of cooperation between the public and the government. Being well informed on global issues is of utmost importance.

In a continued effort to make our community an epicenter of awareness and civil engagement and to make this an exemplary state in the global community, we are asking for your financial support in bringing together the 16th annual Mountain Top Film Festival.

The festival will run from January 18 through 24, 2019 and will show a range of documentary and dramatic films along with hosting a number of guest speakers and directors. The festival is strongly focused on educational outreach by providing free screenings for high-school classes, discussion forums and lesson plans.

The MountainTop Film Festival has established itself as an important community event as well as a coveted film festivals for audiences and filmmakers alike. Attendance far exceeded expectations boasting a crowd of over 2,500 people each year from the Valley and surrounding communities.

We are coming to you - our community and business leaders, asking for help to cover the costs in bringing together this forum on human and civil rights. Sponsorship packages have been designed to help facilitate your contribution, show your support of the festival, and promote your business.
