About Mozilla

We exist to protect the internet as a global public resource, open and accessible to all. Mozilla is the maker of Firefox, the open-source browser that more than 300 million people rely on for a safer, saner online life. But a healthy internet requires more than great products. So Mozilla also supports individual and collective actions that advance a more human-centered internet’ or ‘bolster people and bold ideas through our fellowships and awards. We publish critical research in our Internet Health Report. We run global advocacy campaigns around issues like trustworthy AI and online privacy. And we connect open internet leaders at events like MozFest.

About Mozilla Festival (MozFest)

Celebrating its first year in Amsterdam, MozFest is the world’s leading event for the internet health movement. The week-long festival showcases world-changing ideas and technology through workshops, talks, and interactive sessions. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MozFest will be mostly virtual in 2021. In previous years, we have welcomed over 3,000 in-person attendees and we expect an even larger audience to engage with us virtually. Past featured speakers include individuals like Zeynep Tufekci, Julia Angwin, Audrey Tang, and Brian Behlendorf, who are leading their respective fields and changing the way we interact with the world. Watch main-stage talks from MozFest 2019, or browse the MozFest blog.

The festival is known for its community feel, the diverse audience it attracts and covering a huge range of topics often eschewed by more ‘pure tech’ conferences.

Why Sponsor MozFest

MozFest is a unique opportunity to partner with Mozilla, show your commitment to a healthy internet, and connect with thousands of like-minded thinkers. If you believe in a saner, more private, and human-centered digital experience online, there is no better place to spotlight those values than MozFest. Covered by NPR, WIRED UK, The Guardian, and other top publications, MozFest provides ample opportunities for brand exposure. As we celebrate our inaugural year in Amsterdam, sponsors have the chance to interact with the people, projects, and code that will shape the internet in years to come. While our first year in Amsterdam will primarily be virtual, we will be laying the groundwork for a robust in-person festival for the following years.

MozFest is good at both leading the conversation into the broader interdisciplinary field (e.g. education, journalism, science) and illuminating technology practices and their implementation.
