88 Rue du Rhone is launching 88 Rue du Rhone Film Month, which is a whole month of competitions for members of the public to win access to British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) related film events taking place throughout June. Tickets can be won via the brand’s social media channels.
The concept follows on from 88 Rue du Rhone’s success as Official Watch & Timing Partner of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). The watch brand has selected eight events for which it will run competions for the pubic to win access to. The special events are designed to showcase the inner workings of the film industry, presented by masters of their craft such as Joss Whedon, John Battsek, Chris King, Jane Petrie, Rob Hardy BSC, Sandy Powell OBE and Gabriel Yared. Members of the public will be able to win access to the events via Facebook and Twitter.
88 Rue du Rhone co-founder Elie Bernheim said: “Our vision for launching the 88 Rue du Rhone Film Month is to showcase the precision, independent thinking and craftsmanship that goes into each element of producing a film.
"Our partnership with BAFTA is extremely important to use and reaches way beyond just the ceremonies during the awards season. We wanted to create an annual partnership with the organisation that enables us to offer the public incredible, unique access to some of the most revered faces in the film industry and to be able to educate themselves on how the business works as a whole."
The film month launches on Wednesday will run until June 26.
The eight different events that can we won by visiting the 88 Rue du Rhone Twitter and Facebook pages take place across the UK and include the BAFTA Crew Masterclass: Chris King on Editing in Brighton; BAFTA Masterclass: John Battsek on Documentary Producing in Sheffield and BAFTA A Life in Pictures: Joss Whedon in London.
