Social Impact Film Company Attends Festival de Cannes in 2019

May 14, 2019

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2019--

OnBuzz will be attending the 50th annual Festival de Cannes Marché du Film, the world’s leading global film industry organization. OnBuzz’s attendance follows the national success and critical acclaim of Friday’s Child, which featured an internationally-acclaimed cast with Tye Sheridan (“Ready Player One”), Imogen Poots (“Green Room”), Caleb Landry Jones (“Get Out”) and Jeffrey Wright (“Westworld”).

The social impact film brings to light the trials and tribulations of foster youth aging out of care in the United States, telling the courageous story of a young boy facing the challenges and unexpected realities of adult life. Following its premiere at SXSW 2018, Friday’s Child’s positive reception in America paves the way for OnBuzz to expand its reach to international audiences.

The mission of OnBuzz is to build a platform that allows audiences to be both entertained by film and also have the opportunity to learn about and engage in being a part of the solution through activism for important social issues.

OnBuzz strives to partner with international organizations to develop more films with strong social messages for international audiences. “We see the need to spread solutions and change across the world as a priority in our company,” said Marielle Zuccarelli, President, OnBuzz Studios. “Our platform is designed to engage audiences and improve our society globally.”
