Brenden Hubbard, award-winning producer and film festival manager at ‘Bearly There Media’ and Marianna Boguslavsky, founder & MD of digital strategy agency ‘Boguslavsky & Co’, are partnering to launch Filmtela, an international film marketing agency that will be integrating both traditional and digital marketing for the entertainment industry.
The duo first worked together in 2014 on the Before I Disappear film project (based on Oscar winning short film Curfew) starring Paul Wesley, Ron Perlman, Emmy Rossum, Shawn Christensen and Fatima Ptacek – ensuring sold out screenings at some of the most prestigious film festivals in the world (SXSW, Venice Film Festival, Busan International Film Festival) along with attracting and driving audiences to VOD platforms.
‘Brenden and Marianna were instrumental to the success of Before I Disappear film festival and marketing strategy. Thanks to this dream team, Before I Disappear was screened at Venice Film Festival, Hollywood Film Festival, and a myriad of others, along with a strong social media strategy that resulted in sold out film festival screenings and international sales’ – praised Shawn Christensen, Academy Award winning writer-director.
‘’There is a significant problem with the current state of the film marketing industry – majority of film & entertainment projects are not getting enough traction because they are not marketed effectively. Our goal is to help producers, directors and sales agents by providing them with a sophisticated audience targeting solution from post-production and international launch up to release and distribution. Our focus is on amplifying the reach of each film by leveraging latest technology, data analysis, and performance marketing’’ – commented Marianna Boguslavsky.
Brenden Hubbard added, ‘’we believe what makes us different from other film marketing agencies is the combination of our specialized skill sets and the proven ability to be innovating when it comes to leveraging both traditional and digital in the film festival and marketing space.’’
