Set in the heart of Oscars season, the third annual Global Movie Day (2022) focused on tributing the silver screen through the memories made at the movie theater, getting people back into theaters, and ultimately affirming that the future of movies and the way we watch them are here to stay.
Leading up to the holiday, we identified global movie lovers, entertainment partners, artists and filmmakers to capture & create content that showcased their love and memory of movies.
In December 2021, we released a Global Promotion where movie lovers of all ages could enter for a chance to be featured in a video to be released on our social channels on Global Movie Day, asking them "What their favorite movie is and why?".
