Our mission is to connect the Hudson Valley through transformative cinematic experiences, and our local business community is at the center of our work.

The Upstate Business Partners program is designed to support your business and ours during this crucial moment, ensuring our patrons know about the work you do and your generosity. The Upstate Business Partners program, which replaces our prior advertising program, includes a range of benefits for your business and your employees.


  • Enrollment limited to 24 Business Partners
  • Annual contract
  • Benefits include a full-screen ad in Upstate Films’ pre-film slideshow, your business’ logo on our website or weekly email blast, an opportunity to set up an information table at either Upstate Films Theater, a complimentary theater rental, all-access passes, free movie tickets and so much more!

A variety of benefit packages and add-on bundles are available for six-month and year-long Business Partnerships. A Basic Level Business Partnership for one full year is $3,500. Upstate Films will work with you to build a Business Partnership package that is tailored to meet your marketing, promotion, and advertising needs, as well as align with the philanthropic values of your organization.
