Our ‘How much reality can you handle?’ campaign had been running for about 5 years and it was time for something new. The festival was getting bigger and bigger every year, even getting listed on Entertainment Weekly’s ‘It List.’ It was truly becoming a part of Durham’s pop culture and cultural landscape and one of the biggest tourist draws in the city. We always talked about FullFrame as the world’s home for documentaries. Kind of the hollywood of docs. So we created the idea of Realitywood, a place far away from Hollywood and the land of big features. We even renamed the city ‘Realitywood’ by mayoral decree for the four days of the festival. This was a fully integrated campaign with guerilla placed in NY and LA, print, newspaper, television, a new website and much more.
Here’s our favorite spot/movie trailer from this campaign.
