Campari to Turn Unmade Films into Posters to Drive Funding for Film Creation
Campari, known for its collaboration with icons, is launching an innovative initiative called Posters to Production to support Australian filmmakers. In response to the challenges faced by local filmmakers in obtaining funding for their ideas, Campari will create movie posters inspired by unmade film concepts. These posters will be unveiled at the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) and feature QR codes to facilitate crowdfunding for the films’ creation. Filmmakers can apply here by submitting their unmade film synopsis, and four selected filmmakers will have their ideas turned into posters.
Campari’s rich history in poster design and collaboration with renowned directors, such as Federico Fellini, showcases their commitment to art and cinema culture. As a longstanding partner of MIFF, Campari will donate a portion of every Campari cocktail sale to support the unmade films, while also participating in other initiatives like the MIFF Shorts Awards. For those not attending MIFF, the posters will be available for viewing digitally at campariau.com where Australians can then click-out to the respective GoFundMe pages to donate.
