Strike Media At The Festivals 2021
As we return to festivals, Strike have sunk our PR teeth in a number of UK festivals.
Earlier in the year we handled the publicity for the skateboarding doc, Rom Boys: 40 Years of Rad, which screened at the Romford Film Festival, as well as the surreal docu-drama I’m An Electric Lampshade, which also screened at Romford, as well as Barnes and Ignite Film Festival.
Now that in-person festivals are back, we were brought on board to work on two films at FrightFest 2021, What Mary Saw and When The Screaming Starts.
London Film Festival promises to as busy as ever, with Strike handling the publicity for the critically acclaimed British horror, Shepherd as well as the Icelandic Action Comedy Cop Secret.
Concluding our 2021 festival run, Strike teamed up with our friends at Goldfinch at Raindance Film Festival, who were premiering their new films, pandemic inspired drama A Bird Flew In and the psychological horror, Father Of Flies. Strike worked with the festival team to secure additional reviews and interview for both, in order to raise the profile of the titles ahead of their 2022 UK releases.
Next up, we travel to Talinn for Talinn Nights, watch this space!
If you have a film at an upcoming festival and are looking for additional press to raise awareness of the film, please get in touch!
