It’s movie awards season, and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards – that’s BAFTAs to you – is a celebration of the best of the year’s movies.
Supporting the BAFTAs for 15th year is Orange, underlining its ongoing commitment to movies and movie makers. Orange’s commitment to film is an object lesson in sponsorship in a creative sector, and something that the Orange film loving customers benefit from throughout the year.
The film which has been creating quite a bit of buzz this year, ironically is the silent movie The Artist. D&CFilm reviewer Sean Wilson says it is a ‘heartwarming crowdpleaser that is in love with films itself’.
The Artist makes a central part of the Orange Film Pulse site (it had a ‘Pulse’ score of 88 out of 100 at the time of going to press), where cineastes can keep up to date with what the internet’s saying about film in one place, with one simple score.
And it’s a great part of the run up to the BAFTAs, which take place on Sunday, February 12. But what makes Orange’s commitment to film really special is its ongoing support to the movie-watching public through Orange Wednesday and Orange Film To Go.
Orange Wednesdays – the year-long two-for-one offer from Orange for movie fans – gives Orange customers the opportunity to get to the cinema every week for half the price. All you have to do is text FILM to 241, get a code and show it when buying your movie tickets.
And for more mid-week movie treats Orange Film To Go allows Orange customers to downland a new film from iTunes every Thursday free of charge.
All this will mean that even those on a tight budget can have an opinion on the latest cinematic selection, and offer their tips for BAFTA success. Will The Artist take the plaudits? Or perhaps the other big hitter Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy will win out?
But you don’t have to wait for the BAFTAs to make your tuppence worth count. The Orange Film Pulse site has a section where you can pick your rising star.
