EAST SCREEN WEST SCREEN shows this month:
– The Grave Bandits
We kicked off our transmedia campaign work for the Filipino indie zombie adventure film The Grave Bandits. The film was premiered at the 38th Metro Manila Film Festival and saw a 7 day theater run. We went down to Manila to support the ground running and built actively an online+ offline audience. After winning the two main awards within the New Wave section of the festival (Best Film, Best Director) the film is set for a commercial release in spring this year. We’re now extending the story universe online throughout various channels.
