Social media text

The wording below is a guide to how partners of #FiveFilms4Freedom might like to communicate the campaign to their audiences to generate as much interest and engagement on social media as possible.

Please note these are only suggestions. Partners will be better-placed to judge how to communicate about the campaign in an engaging way to their respective audiences, so please do feel free to adapt (also translate if required) as appropriate.

Please check that the tweets fit the 140-character limit when adding the media content and page links. This will vary depending on the content you choose to promote with each tweet.

Facebook – please use these tweets as a basis to create Facebook content, too.

Timing: The content in each of the tweets can be adapted to work for the time period in which you plan to publish the tweets, so please adapt as necessary if they are pre-promotion tweets (10-16 March), tweets from 16 to 26 March (when the five films will be available to watch), tweets scheduled for the global campaign day on 21 March, and tweets published in the last few days of the campaign until 26 March.

What content should the tweets link to?

There will be a variety of content available to teams to use with social media posts. If you are asking people to watch the films online (16-26 March), please direct your audiences to the British Council Arts YouTube channel.

Content to promote the films will be made available as it is ready between now and 10 March, so please check the hashtag on Twitter for the latest.

You can also point audiences to the global #FiveFilms4Freedom page, if in doubt.
