Screen International is launching a major new UK awards event – the Screen UK Marketing & Distribution Awards – which will take place on Oct. 5 at the Savoy Hotel in London.
The event will honour outsanding achievement in UK film marketing and distribution in 15 categories which will be judged by an illustrious panel of judges chaired by Lord Puttnam.
The categories encompass release campaigns for studio and independent film, British and foreign language film, marketing and PR, posters, trailers, online and premieres as well as a lifetime achievement award.
“In an industry which has more awards ceremonies than most, the dazzling enterprise displayed by the distribution sector is rarely acknowledged,” said Screen editor Mike Goodridge.
“We are all determined at Screen to ensure that these awards become an annual opportunity to applaud distributors in their continued efforts to feed films through all media and sustain the ongoing industry imperative of connecting films with audiences.
