Our sponsors and supporters enable us to deliver the UK’s leading short film, animation and virtual reality festival, and help us to make the festival the best it can be.

Encounters offers a selection of long term promotional and development opportunities for sponsors from screenings, to talent development and education.

We offer a range of bespoke opportunities which every year allow our sponsors and supporters to reach public audiences of over 15,000, including several thousand emerging creatives and around 600 film, animation and creative industry attendees from across the world.
