Lakedance Film Festival organizers today announced an agreement with laser image, inc. of Sandpoint to title sponsor the event for 2009. Immediately, it will be known as Lakedance by laser image.

“We are thrilled to continue working with laser image, inc. only now in a much more major capacity.” Festival Director Trevor Greenfield explained. “Their expertise in computers and theater design will help us greatly as we adapt our festival to the ever-changing technology of the 21st century and aim to please our audience in new and exciting ways both visually and audibly”.

laser image inc. President and CEO Joel Whitaker adds, “We have been proud to support the Lakedance Film Festival since it first arrived in Sandpoint in 2006, and the opportunity to be the title sponsor is an honor. Our business specializes in entertainment and technologies, offering everything from custom computers to custom home theaters with surround sound to watch the very best films available. This partnership makes perfect sense for us and we are pleased to help further Sandpoint’s exposure to quality international independent films.”

laser image, inc. has been a sponsor of the film festival since its inception in 2006, and became a presenting sponsor in 2007.

The company was purchased by Joel Whitaker in 2003, then acquired Sandpoint Satellite and moved their offices to their current location at 314 North Fifth Avenue in 2008. This will mark the first event the company has title sponsored.
