We love all our Sponsors because they help to make WorldFest possible. From Arcodoro, one of the best Italian restaurants in Texas & the very finest Sardinian restaurant in Houston; Cinemark Theatres, our wonderful new festival cinema partner, to our wonderful VIP Sponsor, Celebrity Cruises, we believe that our Sponsors are simply the best! We love the Marriott Westchase, our wonderful HQ host hotel which offers a great central location in near the Cinemark Theatres in Memorial City with Shuttles for our festival guests! The premiere office company in Houston is Boxer Property! So much of the work done behind the scenes is produced by the brilliant creative team at Lopez Negrete Communications who inspire us with their amazing graphics design concepts and brilliant Web Design each year… Whenever possible, we encourage you to patronize their services to let them know they are appreciated for what they do in support of our cause. We are certainly proud of them and Thankful for their belief in our mission to ‘validate excellence’ in emerging and Independent cinema.
