The Hong Kong International Film and TV Market, also known as Filmart, finished last week and ODM have finished tracking it.

Filmart is one of Asia’s largest film and entertainment shows. Organised by the HKTDC (Hong Kong Trade and Development Council) and held at the HKCEC (Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center), filmart hosts exhibits on almost any kind of visual film marketing.

Film art exhibits: distribution, production and acquisition of films, TV programmes, animation, digital entertainment, games, production and post-production services as well as shooting locations, film commissions, film festivals, film insurance and film financing.

What Is The Conclusion of this Event Tracking?

For this year’s Filmart, The ODM Group followed the event closely and gathered information from over 659 tweets before and during the event. After analyzing this information we created the following word cloud, with the number of mentions being represented by the size of the word.

As seen in the word cloud the big focus (except for filmart itself) was on “THRGlobal”, “Bonnie Lynn”  and “streetphotography” made it big onto the list. THR are a brand that branch from the hollywood report and focuses on castings, deals, reviews and box office news. With Street photography being a popular attraction at the venue, in particular the artist Bonnie Lynn’s latest street shots, there was no doubt that they would follow THR and Filmart as some of the leading tweeted words.

Alongside this, we also found out who the 25 most active people on Twitter were. This type of event provides a good opportunity to increase your brand awareness through the use of social media especially if you are in the film or advertising industry. The top 25 are listed below.
