A corporate membership to ASIFA-Hollywood is a great way to give an important benefit to your valued employees. Each member, either Pro or Associate, will receive news and information on upcoming events, seminars and screenings throughout the year. Qualified professional members may also vote in the Annie Awards. Corporate members are also recognized throughout the year on our e-mail blasts and website as well as the annual Annie Award program.
ASIFA-Hollywood Corporate Memberships start at $7500. In the simplest iteration, this would cover 50 Pro-level memberships at $150 per member. Currently, there are no discounts for members enrolled over the $7500 threshold, though the discount structure could change this year. (Please remember to ask about possible discounts when you apply to enroll or renew a corporate membership.)It is important to note that a corporate membership can be made up of some Pro and some Associate members. In all cases, the threshold to be listed as a Corporate Member on our websites, e-blasts and Annie program book remains $7500.
An Associate membership is $45. This level is designed for students, aficionados and people in the business who want to be members but do not qualify as production pros (eg: legal department, human resources, office management, etc.). Associate members cannot vote for the Annies and cannot submit nominations (except for the Best Student Film category). Associate members can serve as submission coordinators (ie: do the paperwork, organize entry materials, etc.) but, officially, the submission must be signed by a Pro-level member.
Pro-level entitles a qualified member to vote and also submit nominees for Annies (Nominees themselves do not have to be ASIFA members, but their submitters do.) Besides the other benefits of membership, Pros are also entitled to whatever screeners the studios send out.
All Pro-level membership dues, either via a corporate membership or paid individually, must be current to vote for the Annies. Deadline to enroll or renew and be able to vote is November 4th, 2013.
