Reel Partners for Business Owners

We have so many loyal fans; make them your customers! Reel Partners, a discount program for members of the Jacob Burns Film Center, provides great exposure for your business. It gives you the opportunity to support our nonprofit arts organization while reaching potential customers. Businesses partner with the JBFC for one year, providing a special offer or discount to our members. In return, we promote our partners in several ways:

  • We create a brochure listing all partners, offers, and contact info, which goes out to over 7,000 member households early each year.
  • We post partners, offers, and contact info on our website, which gets more than 125,000 views per month.
  • We display a promotional poster in our Theater lobby, which is visited by over 200,000 moviegoers each year.
  • We promote Reel Partners in our weekly e-bulletin, emailed to 28,000 subscribers, linking to your contact info on our website.
  • We share your offer to our Media Arts Lab students and families, who are part of the JBFC community and participate in 300-plus classes each year.
  • We offer other promotional opportunities throughout the year, such as limited-time promotions and raffles for members.

Our 7,000 member households represent 10,000 customers who are upscale, well-educated, and primarily age 40-65. They are strong repeat customers, renewing their support for us regularly.

Nonprofit rates and Corporate Sponsorships are available, but we do not offer any other advertising opportunities to businesses and never sell our mailing lists.

The annual cost for Reel Partners participation is $95. A list of participating businesses is posted on our site. Please join us!
