 Film institution & Film festival Marketing

Whether you are running an event or supporting a film production, audience behavioral data is vital to the successful outcome of any project whether it be market research for a risk assement through to helping promote the event or production you sponsored.

Detail the consumer through audience analysis

Brandwatch is a service that allows us to monitor all online ‘chatter’ and sentiment about the films or events that you are supporting. We can see which websites your potential festival audiences use, and track their engagement with the related themes across all social media platforms and the web.

Identify your target market with The Audience Project (TAP)

Identify your target market  with The Audience Project (TAP)

The Audience Project (TAP) is Gruvi's unique in-house movie audience database. Partly funded by Creative Europe, it exploits the knowledge we have from running over  3,000+ film campaigns, combined with first-party data from our cinema and VOD partners.

This unique data provides a cohort analysis of the population's behavior, their actions, and therefore their true preferences for different content themes. From our years of film festival marketing experience initial briefs about who your audience is can be tested and proven/disproven,  and the data used to identify &  target bespoke ‘lookalike’ groups.

Use our Martech to reach your perfect audience 

Use Gruvi's film festival marketing strategies, technology and services to media plan effectively and help promote the films your support with funding. The same logic works for events and festivals you are supporting, promote multiple films simultaneously, and better understand your audiences' interests. Engage with them specifically on the purchase of tickets for appropriate titles, events, or other special conferences.
