Advertise with Film Board

If you want an ad on the big screen:

  • Payment must be delivered to the advertising chair before the slide will be shown! (fees explained below)
  • Slide and payment must be received, and an advertising contract completed prior to 5:00pm on the Thursday before the first weekend the ad is to be shown
  • If you would prefer not to design your own slide, the advertising chair can design a good looking one for you for a small fee

Exceptions to the deadline are at the discretion of the current advertising chair

Payment options:

Slide Slot

  • Plan 1: $10 per weekend
  • Plan 2: $75 for the entire academic semester


  • $50 for the first 30 seconds, $25 for every 15 seconds following

We accept cash, check, or MTU inter-account bill.

The slides must be in the Microsoft PowerPoint .pptx format using a 2.39:1 (Scope print) ratio, and have embedded fonts enabled.

  • We use a full digital cinema Scope print which uses a  2.39:1 aspect ratio. The ad should be planned around that.
  • Vector art is preferred for images, but your design team may want to make the ad a single raster image.
  • Microsoft recommends that such an image be the resolution of the projector, which for us is 2048×858 when showing a Scope image.
  • Because this is a projected image, high contrast text is good (stay away from dark blues on black, etc.)

A blank PowerPoint slide in the 2.39:1 ratio, with embedded fonts pre-enabled, is available here for download.
The slide must be in this format or it will not be shown.
