Colony’s Daniel Díaz nominated for a Screen Award
Head of Audience Marketing named in Screen Awards’ 2016 Rising Star shortlist
The Screen Awards "celebrate the people and companies dedicated to connecting audiences with films, with categories covering distribution, exhibition, marketing, publicity and brand partnerships". We are thrilled that Daniel’s been included in this year’s Rising Star category.
“…I’m delighted to see my team’s work being recognised” said Daniel.
Daniel joined the Colony team in March 2015 and has since been responsible for audience growth and devising the platform’s marketing strategy across community, events, content, PR and paid channels. Daniel began his career in brand strategy and research before moving into film marketing, managing social media campaigns for indie and blockbuster releases including 12 Years A Slave, Man Of Steel, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Filth, among others. Prior to joining Colony, Daniel lived in Chile where he managed what became the country’s biggest film crowdfunding campaign as producer and marketing lead of feature film Camaleón, which is premiering in cinemas across Chile later this year.
The Screen Awards judging panel includes industry experts from the likes of BBC Films, Protagonist Pictures and Film4. Last year the rising star prize was bestowed on Claire Loewenthal from independent film distribution and production company Signature Entertainment, whose slate of films include Kids In Love, which is coming soon to Colony.
The marketing campaigns behind films such as Star Wars: Force Awakens, Suffragette and Bolshoi Babylon have also been recognised. The winners will be announced on October 20th 2016.
