Scope50 winners picked by audiences
Li'l Quinquin by Bruno Dumont

Scope50 has just announced the winning films from its partnered territories. The project developed by Gutek Film (Poland) and Festival Scope (France), in collaboration with Aero Films (Czech Republic), Stadtkino (Austria), Soda Pictures (UK) and Cinefil Co (Hungary) and supported by EU Creative Europe Audience Development, seeks to rethink the acquisition and the release processes for independent European films by building up a community (the Scope50 community) consisting of 50 active film lovers from each participating country who must watch ten carefully selected films and vote for the best one - which will subsequently be released.

Each country’s audience has elected a different winner: The Reunion [+see also:

turned more than a few heads in Hungary. In some cases, it led to great collateral effects, as the distributor ended up buying two films: the winner as voted by the audience and the favourite film of its distribution team. For example, this happened to Party Girl [+see also:

, which will be distributed in Poland by Gutek Film ahead of the release of Magical Girl.

After the films had been screened for a month, viewers were fully engaged in discussing and influencing the marketing campaign – including elements such as trailers, loglines and bold, original initiatives. Many of them offered to act as “film ambassadors”, cooperate with the local media and introduce the winning film to the general public at preview screenings. Graphic designers among the audience are working on poster designs, which will be submitted to the producers, while bloggers will have an opportunity to conduct interviews with the directors. The releases are planned for the coming month of June.
