Jane Minarovic, director of the inaugural Inspire Film Festival, today announced the current slate of Woodlands-area community leaders that are the latest sponsors of the event that is taking place February 23-26 at several different Woodlands-area venues. The Inspire Film Festival will feature approximately 20 films over the four days that illustrate the power of one person to make great change in the world.
“The sponsorships from these business owners, philanthropists, and film lovers alike came from their joint desire to highlight not only The Woodlands area, but also the films and filmmakers presented in this festival that showcase all that is best of the human spirit,” said Minarovic.
Besides the films themselves, Inspire will also include panel discussions, networking and social events, special guests, and a VIP reception. Ticket packages range from $50 to $300 and can be purchased at www.inspirefilmfest.com.

- The Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau

The concept of a film festival whose sole purpose is to inspire its audiences has already caught the attention of leaders in both the film industry and the community itself. “What Jane is doing is exciting, and I'm confident the community will love the festival,” said Congressman Kevin Brady, who represents The Woodlands area in the United States House of Representatives. “The Inspire Film Festival is further testament to the arts explosion happening in The Woodlands and will continue to bring positive cultural and economic impact year after year.”
