There are thousands of films being released every year. Most of these films will either be released at a film festival circuit or premiere at a film festival. It is therefore up to the filmmakers to decide how they are going to organize a memorable launch party and movie premiere for their film. Here are some essential tips that you can use to come up with a unique event that is memorable to all the participants.
Once you have finished your movie and it is ready to hit the theaters, only then can you set a date for your movie premiere party. The most important thing is selecting a perfect date. You don’t want to come up with a date that coincides with a major event. Once you have found the perfect date, the next step is choosing the venue and start marketing your event through social media platforms and other avenues.
Most filmmakers choose obvious venues to throw a movie premiere party. The event can either be held at bars, conferences, hotels, or bars. The problem with such places is that people are already used to them and tend to lose interest. You, therefore, have to think outside the box when it comes to choosing the venue of your launch party.
For instance, you can decide to go to the beach, a Hollywood club, or any other place that is not so obvious. Selecting a unique event creates a sense of curiosity among your attendees which will make them show up in huge numbers.
Props can either make or break or break your event. If they are poorly used, they will look tacky and unattractive. However, they can be a fantastic addition to your event. You can include customized props such as a champagne glass with the logo of your movie. You can also have entertainers such as stilt walkers, flair bartenders so people can take pictures and Instagram it.
Whether you are working on a budget or not, it is essential to include a few freebies for your attendees. Get creative and have the cost of the freebies covered by sponsors. For example, you can cover the cost of the bar for the first few hours, and this will help in driving the traffic and make the attendees show up early enough.
The best way to make your launch event fun and memorable is by having engaging entertainment, good food, and drinks. There are many options that you can utilize to have an exemplary event. For instance, you can hire musicians or a stand -up comedian. You can also use incorporate raffle-based contest where attendees win something after completing specific tasks, such as naming the stars of the movie in alphabetical order. The objective is to have your attendees engaged and have a good time.
