Some items that help to make the film successful is the timing of the release of the film, the public relations campaign, and tours of talks shows to promote the film. Can the cultural climate affect the politics of films that win awards, such as wars, religion, and challenged legislations?
A very ambitious article, and one that has the potential to be very insightful and interesting. With a topic this broad though, it might be better to either focus on specific movie or director examples, or to focus on certain events that have had significant impact. However, if you plan on writing this yourself, you may have much more information at hand that I can mull over at a glance. Perhaps if you decide not to write this, a conversation with whomever picks it up could do this topic the most justice. Good luck! – Matt Collazo7 years ago
Nice topic! Timing is everything when it comes to a film meeting deadlines for film festivals. Over the years, there's been several films that met with controversy. A video that may help this article is an interview of Peter Bart, and bribes are implied that affect how the members of the Academy vote. Good luck! – Amanda Dominguez-Chio7 years ago
Cool article, hope it gets picked up. Are you hoping to cover everything PR and media related or just specific things? It might be cool to either cover every aspect of the journey from Film Festival to Oscar night or specific films known for playing the PR card AKA The Artist for pushing the gimmick to the finish line to get bigger profits post Oscars? – Thomas Munday7 years ago
Timely article, with the recent award season. Be interesting if you highlight how different award shows have different politics? – Aliya Gulamani7 years ago
