How we deliver
May the film be with you…
A long time ago, in a strategy meeting far, far away… we struck upon the Holy Grail of ideas. There’s not a single person who doesn’t love film – whether it’s a night on the sofa with an old favourite, or a trip to the cinema for a new blockbuster. And nothing grabs our attention quite like our favourite films – you should see the amount of nerd toys on our desks.
Films and brands go together like Han and Chewie. Or like J-Law and Coop. Wes Anderson and Futura. A Royale with Cheese. The right film complements your brand values while adding credibility to your campaign, drawing in film fans who didn’t notice you before, and aligning you with the star or franchise that says the most about you.
But everyone knows breaking into the movie biz is a challenge – so let us be your agent, putting you in touch with the cinemas and distributors that can make it happen. As Sodexo Filmology, we’ll make sure we always find the right role for you, taking a strategic approach to maximise the impact of your promotion. Lights, camera, brand recognition! Not as snappy as “action”, we know, but you’ll be getting five star reviews all over.
What We Do
Brand and Movie Partnerships
Who actually owns the rights to the film that best personifies your brand and speaks to your audience? Who's got the authority to make it happen? While we don't have Spielberg in our rolodex (we wish!), we do have everyone who counts. We work with all the major film distributors, and most of the smaller ones too, to make your campaign happen. We also seek permissions, obtain film assets (images, trailers, clips and behind-the-scenes stuff), work through all the legal stuff, and even write your terms and conditions. Easy as American Pie.
Give your prize winners a perfect night in with our film prizes – we're masters at assembling an unbeatable DVD or Blu-ray prize library for your campaign. And we don't stop with the small screen – posters, toys, t-shirts and collectibles, even movie-themed holiday experiences can also be up for grabs. Everything you need to create a film promotion that really stands out.
We're the biggest suppliers of B2B cinema tickets in the UK, giving you the best choice of discounted access. By working with all the major cinema chains and over 200 independents, over 90% of the UK are just a short trip away from one of our cinemas – you just won't find that level of coverage anywhere else! With the choice of physical and digital tickets, we've got everything sorted.
Take a look at our absolutely massive movie database, with release dates and synopses for hundreds of upcoming blockbusters.

What our film promotions can do for you
Film promotions have the power to reach out to just about everyone. Millions of people will see the next Bond, Star Wars, or Marvel picture – and that’s just for starters. It can have a massive impact on attracting customers and boosting sales, with that star power making you stand out from all your competitors.
Aligning your brand with films people love makes you part of a global conversation – but it creates local experiences too. Whether it’s the nearest multiplex or hidden gem of an indie, there’s a way for people to engage with your campaign wherever they are in the UK. Scroll down to find out more.
Inspiring Consumer Loyalty
Loyal customers are the best. It costs so much more to get a new customer than it does to keep one sticking around. But consumer loyalty is something you need to earn – and we’ve been around long enough to know exactly what people are looking for.
Driving Consumer Sales for Brands
The key to driving sales isn’t just about the numbers, it’s about providing the best possible connection between consumers lives and brand experience. Whether it’s online, on the high street, or on supermarket shelves, there’s loads of different promotions we can use to make sure people throw their hard-earned funds your way.
Attracting and Engaging Consumers
What sets off that spark in consumers’ minds? We’re all about running disruptive, attention-grabbing promotions. The campaigns that really make a splash in any marketplace, raising awareness while giving your customers the chance to get way more for their money.
