There is no doubt that social media holds considerable power in the aspect of promoting content. Many celebrities have used social media as a tool to step into the limelight, as many people are now constant users of various social media platforms. From TikTok to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, there has been an increasing number of users on all these platforms, making them suitable for promoting content and reaching a large audience. Record labels also use social media to promote new artists and content.

Audience Engagement

Unlike before, when fans could only meet and interact with their favourite celebrities through meet-and-greets or at award shows, social media now allows fans and celebrities to interact on a more personal level. Fans can comment on any celebrity post, which is a great way for fans and celebrities to have a closer relationship. Some celebrities even create question-and-answer sessions for their fans to ask them about anything. Sometimes celebrities use social media to talk about their personal lives, so fans no longer have to wait for interviews and public appearances.

International Reach

Social media has helped European movies gain international recognition and has aided filmmakers in reaching a global audience. Through hashtags, content can go viral and receive international recognition, so filmmakers, artists, and promoters have used the power of hashtags to promote their content. Before a movie premieres, there is always an announcement through magazines and publications, but nowadays a social media platform like Twitter can be used to inform fans and viewers about upcoming movies and projects, which will in turn make it known before it happens and when it finally does, it will leave a lasting impression.

Film Festivals and Events

Social media plays a big role in helping artists and filmmakers to promote and cover their events. Events like film festivals, the Oscars, and other events are always being talked about on social media. Before and after the events, there is always a big buzz on social media because everyone wants to know what went down at their favourite artists’ events or award shows.

Social media has completely changed the way European movies are marketed, promoted, and consumed. It has surely opened up new avenues for filmmakers to engage with their audience, expand their reach, and also create a global impact.
