Collaborate with Spark!

“Collaborative” is in our name—and we mean it!

Our community of collaborative supporters range from individuals, progressive minded businesses, and fellow nonprofits — each interested in supporting independent creators from the ground up, and growing their own community at the same time.

From tax-deductible donations and event or program sponsorships to custom film challenges and screenings, our team is constantly dreaming up fun strategies to reach new audiences.

Whether you’re a filmmaker, an individual donor, a business owner, or a nonprofit, there’s no end to the ways we can grow together.
