Become an Upstate Films Business Sponsor

Put your advertising money to work while supporting the arts in your community. By participating in Upstate’s on screen slideshow and/or placing an ad badge on our website, you can promote your business by becoming part of the show.

Each year, more than 77,000 people come to Upstate Films to view the latest in independent, foreign, and documentary cinema.

  • A motivated and well-informed audience, 11,000 moviegoers check our website monthly for film descriptions and show times.
  • A captive audience, moviegoers start arriving up to 20 minutes or more before a film to meet their friends and make sure they get their choice of seat.

Whether they’re regulars attending the cinema on a weekly basis, or out-of-towners visiting the theater as part of a weekend in the Hudson Valley, Upstate Films patrons spend money in the mid-Hudson region – discovering our restaurants, shops, services, hotels, and real estate.

Spanning both sides of the river, we operate a two-screen theater in Rhinebeck and a single screen theater in Woodstock.

  • With on-screen advertising, moviegoers receive your message on all three screens, in both locations on both sides of the Hudson.
  • With web badges, your ad appears on all pages of our website.
  • We feature only local businesses, and space is limited so you are assured your message will stand out.

As an Upstate Films Business Sponsor, your advertising money directly supports the mission of Upstate Films, a 501 c-3 non-profit.

  • Upstate’s slideshow runs for at least 21 minutes before each show.
  • Each slide is on screen for 11 seconds, airing at least 2 times per screening.
  • Upstate’s slideshow runs Friday-Thursday. If you would like to change your ad image or announcement at any time during your contract, please send a new ad at least ten days prior to its desired Friday start date.
  • Artwork should be a static image, and sized 1920px by 1080px (72dpi), submitted as a JPEG or PDF.


Website Badges
