WHAT WE DO
Launched in early 2010, WOLF is a boutique PR and Marketing consulting firm specialising in independent cinema - from pre-production right through launch in major international film festivals. What's unique about WOLF is that we're hands-on designers, marketing consultants and international publicists all rolled into one with an intimate knowledge of all the major festivals and markets. Through many years experience working for sales agents and producers, launching hundreds of films, we understand the demands of the market allowing us to offer a fast, no-nonsense, creative service. In our fragmented industry we're here to help join the dots. Our expertise and flexibility will help you create an effective strategy tailored to your needs, giving your film the best possible start on its way to distribution.
Starting at the Berlin International Film Festival in 2010, WOLF has handled international press for over 30 films selected in major film festivals including Berlin, Cannes, Venice, Toronto and Rome. Taking on no more than 5 titles per festival, WOLF's press slate reflects the breadth and diversity of current world cinema with a focus on director driven films - from established European auteurs to American independents and new voices from South America, the Middle East and beyond.
WOLF has worked with directors such as Ari Folman, Peter Greenaway, Bruno Dumont, Noah Baumbach, Marjane Satrapi, Faouzi Bensaidi and Miranda July and actors including Robin Wright, Danny Huston, Juliette Binoche, Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Greta Gerwig, Amr Waked, Isabelle Huppert and Matthias Schoenaerts.

WOLF also functions as a full service creative agency conceiving, designing and producing attractive and effective marketing materials for our clients. We create everything from pre-production project packaging, posters and press books to corporate catalogs and advertising, as well as full marketing campaigns for national releases. In addition, WOLF's services cover event management and logistics coordination - everything from organizing a premiere party or special event to printing materials and booking ad campaigns. As designers, copywriters, publicists and advisors, WOLF collaborates in various capacities with clients including The Match Factory, eOne International, Celluloid Dreams, EuropaCorp, MK2, Elle Driver, Le Pacte, Ad Vitam Distribution and XYZ Films among others.
WOLF has handled International Press on the following titles.
Beyond preparing the launch of completed films, WOLF provides full service strategic consulting focused on positioning projects at any and all stages of development and production. It's our deep conviction that it's never too early to begin crafting a strategy and that marketing and publicity are a key part of our industry that complement the craft of storytelling.
Our long experience has taught us that far from being an afterthought, marketing and publicity play an essential role in the filmmaking process and provide added value at a variety of different levels. Based on this belief WOLF works hand in hand with directors, producers, investors and distributors on pre-launch strategies and materials with the goal of identifying key elements in each film to help position projects as early as possible in an extremely crowded and competitive marketplace. From script packages, investor presentations to unit publicity and more, we work with our collaborators to understand the needs of each project, maximise visibility and appeal to professionals and audiences alike.
