A hat-trick!

Marston’s Brewery Beer Town Film Festival has been shortlisted for three awards at the 2018 Beer and Cider Marketing Awards.

The Beer and Cider Marketing Awards showcase the UK’s top marketers and celebrate the best campaigns across the industry. The hugely successful film festival has been shortlisted for Best PR Campaign, Best Integrated Campaign and Best Event.

Marston’s Brewery celebrated local and national film talent with Burton’s first ever Beer Town Film Festival, championing up-and-coming filmmakers throughout the UK. The competition, in partnership with Burton and South Derbyshire College and the Burton Mail, launched last autumn and we were thrilled to have nearly 800 entries from home grown filmmakers.

A star-studded group of judges, including screenwriter for ‘Fight Club’ Jim Uhls, Hollywood visual effects producer Rich Yeomans and filmmaker and writer Deborah Haywood, had the difficult task of picking the top talent from each of the categories. The winners were announced at an outdoor cinema screening of ‘Star Wars: Rough One’, held in the brewery yard.

Jo Wyke, Marketing Manager, said: “We’re excited to be nominated for three awards and spread the word about Beer Town. We wanted to put Burton on the map to a new and UK-wide audience – one that loves creativity, experimentation and being the best. Let’s hope the judges feel the same.”

Check out the full shortlist here. The final winners will be announced at London’s Truman brewery on 20 September – we’ve got our fingers crossed 🙂
