Stella puts social media in the frame

02 April, 2010

Stella Artois is looking to strengthen its ties with cinema by launching a global advertising and social media campaign to support its sponsorship of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

A competition will give consumers the chance to go to film premieres at Cannes in May. The 50 winners will stay at the Le Manoir de L’Etang in Mougins, Picasso’s former home, during the event.

The 4% abv brand is using websites such as Twitter, Flickr and Facebook to show 60-second films revolving around the French Riviera.
