May 15, 2014

Amidst the glitzy film premieres and hotel suite haggling over old school foreign rights packages at Cannes Film Festival, running through May 25, multiplatform production company beActive is offering a new kind of deal for Road to Revolution, Portuguese director Dânia Lucas’ documentary about people affected by the Arab Spring uprising.

The company is presenting Road to Revolution to buyers as a transmedia experience, including a feature film, 2 TV documentaries, 40 webisodes and an app for tablets and connected TV devices that extends the documentary experience. It can be licensed by international distributors and VOD platforms as a full package or as separate individual content elements.

The feature-length documentary is currently available worldwide via the Vimeo VOD service.

At Cannes, beActive is also presenting the documentary The Stand Ups (currently in production) and Get Happy, a family film it’s developing with the support of the Irish Film Board.
