Benefits for Sponsors

Nimbin Youth Film Festival relies on the generosity of sponsors for many of the prizes it awards.

History – The Nimbin Youth Film Festival was developed  to create healthy, positive and creative activities for young people that would engage and interest them, also to facilitate mentorship and connection with safe positive role models in the film industry and enhance youth/ community engagement. This was achieved by offering prizes and trophies and having the cinema screening and the awards ceremony. Nearly every year the Mayor of Lismore has delivered a speech on film, creativity and youth and also presents the trophies and prizes. The Nimbin Youth Film Festival  began in 2010 funded through Youth Connections North Coast by Federal and State Government grants and sponsorship from Nimbin business’ and community groups.  Lismore City Council is now the major funding body. The Festival has been running successfully for seven years. Each year the number of participants and the entries into the comp have grown . Nimbin Youth Film Festival has plans to grow into a youth signature event, celebrating all that is creative, inspiring and totally awesome about the young people of Nimbin, Lismore, and the whole Northern Rivers from the Tweed to Grafton.
