A Heartfelt Thank You to Our 2020 Festival Sponsors!
Please join us in recognizing and supporting our very generous sponsors of the eighth annual Thunder Bay International Film Festival. Take a few minute to look closely at this list of sponsors, visit their websites, support their business or organization, and thank them on social media.
