Are Film Festival Ads Better Than Films?


Film Festivals might be the single best example of boundary-free advertising – without clients or brands to get in the way, creative “ads” and trailers for festivals can make for some fantastic creative. When your client, instead of the usual brands, is called ‘Queer Film Festival’, ‘Creepy Animation Night’ or ‘Breast Film Fest,’ you are very likely to see some hilarious, crazy and exciting ad – maybe some even better than the films!

电影节广告片可能是唯一一个创意无上限的类别,因为电影节本身就是一个创意主体,少了品牌客户的约束 – 试想一下你要为类似“同志电影节”“惊悚动漫夜”或者“乳房电影节”拍宣传片,你怎么好意思不绞尽脑汁创造些更基情、更惊悚、更离异的广告片呢?因此电影节的广告可以比参赛电影本身更富创意和更好看。
