Become a Sponsor of the 2023 21st Annual SHOOT New Directors Showcase Event!

the DGA Theater in NYC on Thursday October 26

Whether you'll be a first-time Sponsor or have joined us in the past...
we look forward to welcoming you this year!

The SHOOT NDS Event is an important face-to-face extension of SHOOT’s ongoing mission to provide vital news & information about the creation of all motion picture content – commercial, branded content, movie & television and to search out new talent, new work & new technology across the advertising & entertainment industries. A place to come together to create new work, new business, new opportunities & new partnerships. While SHOOT focuses on this across  its digital & print platforms all year, it’s a pleasure to facilitate the same dynamics in person for attendees including directors, film/TV/cable/OTT production execs, agency heads of production, producers, brand marketers, production/post co. owners, MDs & EPs, cinematographers, editors, VFX & Music execs.

Because our sponsors make this event possible, we provide an enormous amount of industry exposure & promotion value for them starting two months before, during and for a full year after the event.  Join us!
