Suggestion: The strongest banners tend to stick with one approach. We’ve noticed that the banners with the highest click-through rates usually don’t tell the whole story. They entice the user with a little bit of information or an image and then leave the user guessing, wanting more, curious. Woo Hoo! – contact us at – info@worldfest.org


We love all our Sponsors because they help to make WorldFest possible. From Memorial City Mall, with some of the restaurants in Texas; 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.
