Gruvi debuts European Indie Films Calendar, Eurofilmlaunches.com
Updated: Mar 11
Digital agency Gruvi has launched https://www.eurofilmlaunches.com/, a new service designed to benefit independent film distributors and Europa Distribution members in the following territories:
Eurofilmlaunches.com gives each distributor a centralised location to track upcoming film releases across Europe, with more territories to follow later in 2019. This simple to use service is designed to ensure Europa Distribution members can track when one of their upcoming theatrical titles will also be released by fellow members in other territories, in the hope that sharing common information and marketing assets can help one another.
The latest release information is collated & regularly updated from the many distributor websites in each territory, while Europa Distribution members will shortly also be able to log in directly to update any relevant information as & when changes are made to one of their upcoming releases.
Gruvi CEO Ben Johnson said: “We appreciate that now, more than ever, independent film distributors across Europe are facing monumental challenges when they decide to open a film theatrically. The number of titles released in cinemas each week has increased dramatically in recent years, as has the range of platforms the public can use to watch content outside of the cinema. Eurofilmlaunches is designed to offer Europa Distribution members valuable support, by ensuring they are fully aware when colleagues in other territories are working on the same titles, and going through the same processes during the months & weeks prior to a film opening.”
Here is a short video (under 3 minutes) that illustrates how the service can be used: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HmOG5YTILzPFn16msg0QQ0A058IDk6NE/view
