sponsorship

As a not-for-profit organization, The Revue is always looking for keen business partners to help bring programs to life. As a sponsor, you can help us enrich our programming and strengthen our finances, something the community would welcome.

A variety of sponsorship models involve covering specific expenses related to a particular series of programs. The costs vary according to individual programs and could include film rentals, honorariums for speakers and event organizers, or production of printed materials.

In return, sponsors can expect brand exposure and a potential sponsorship title. In addition, we can arrange for complimentary tickets and the option for discounted tickets. Feel free to send us an email at info@revuecinema.ca if you have any questions.

Below are some programs we are already presenting or would be interested in developing.
We could also tailor programs to a sponsor’s interest: a condo developer, for example, might be favour a film series featuring set design and interior styles.

 Below are some sample costs.

Silent Sundays

This has been a popular Sunday afternoon program, introducing all ages to silent slapstick and other films accompanied by live piano. The event replicates how films were originally presented at The Revue in its early days.

  • $300 for accompanist
  • $150-$250 for film rental if required
  • $100-$200 for posters, printed program and distribution
  • $60 for keyboard rental.

Lecture Series

The Revue has had a number of illustrated lecture series, including a program on presidential politics and film and the history of French cinema. A new series, Women in Film, is currently in development.

  • $200-$300 honorarium per lecturer for the lecturer
  • $100-$200 for programs and printed materials
  • Optional cost for a weekend morning event: free coffee and pastry

Hollywood Classics

The Revue has presented some of these films, including the pre-code film Rain, starring
Joan Crawford. Toronto Star film and book critic Geoff Pevere introduced the show.

  • $150 event organizer for arranging event, acting as MC and writing program
    and related articles
  • $150-$300 film rental
  • $100-$200 for programs, posters, distribution
  • $50 honorarium for expert’s pre-show introduction who gives an introduction to the film

Local Heroes

This program, which The Revue is eager to launch, would feature talks by people in our surrounding neighbourhoods who have worked on films in any of a number of capacities:
set design, costume design, writer, director, extra, set dresser, special effects, props maker, etc., and the movies they worked on.  As an example, a local special effects expert has done most of Oliver Stone’s films, as well as the first two X-Men. (He unfortunately turned down Hurt Locker, because he had another project on the go!)

  • $150 event organizer for arranging event, acting as MC and writing program
    and related articles
  • $150-$300 as a lecture honorarium to the local hero
  • $150-$300 for film rental.

R History

A series of films and slide shows about the history of our community, the city, the province and nation, the places and personalities. We also will feature events related to theatre and film history. We have already presented one illustrated lecture about Ontario’s early cinemas and Canada’s filmmaking history.

  • $150 event organizer for arranging event, acting as MC and writing program
    and related articles
  • Honorariums as required
  • Film rental costs as required

Creepy Classics

Another Revue favourite! Our Creepy Classic organizer will typically find a print of a popular classic film like Dracula (1933) or Frankenstein (1931) and screen it with other creepy trailers and short films.

  • $150 event organizer for arranging event, acting as MC and writing program
    and related articles
  • $150-$300 film rental
  • $100-$200 for programs, posters, distribution
