WDFF invites you to join us this year; to join the underground. Uplift and ignite the creative pulse of Columbus, Georgia, that thrives with your support. With over 9.5 billion dollars put towards the economic progress of our state through the film and television industry, the momentum is dynamic way down here. 

WDFF is offering varying levels of corporate sponsorship. We always welcome the opportunity to customize sponsorship packages to accommodate your brand’s needs. We invite you to grow your business and audience though us. Sponsorships allow influential, local businesses to support the arts and be a part of one of Columbus, Georgia’s most exciting cultural events. Each sponsorship level offers varying tiers of promotion through several mediums, including:


“As Columbus natives who have a fiery passion for the expansion of the art scene in Columbus, GA, my husband and I were blown away by the magic of the Way Down Film Festival. The films were marvelous, the Springer Opera House was glowing in all it’s glory, and we were completely entertained and stimulated all weekend. Our favorite part about the festival, though, was the connectivity. We found that our conversations after the films with fellow attendees and artists alike had beautiful depth, leaving our souls alive, on fire, and bursting with inspiration.”
— Alee Link
“It was one of the best film experiences I have had thus far, and you all have something very special happening in your community.”
— Yousef Kazemi, Filmmaker 2017

Way Down Film Festival operates under Way Down Festival, LLC. and through a non- profit fund at The Springer Opera House. Charitable donations for Way Down Film Festival can be made through the Springer Opera House.
