Yet another year TikTok is an outstanding partner of the San Sebastian Festival in order to continue celebrating the passion for cinema and to promote culture and entertainment, both on and off the platform.
The San Sebastian Festival is famous worldwide as a meeting place for moviemakers, producers and lovers of the seventh art. TikTok is delighted to increase its commitment to the culture of film and to continue promoting creativity and art, bringing this exciting cultural event to more than 1 billion users all over the world.
This collaboration will enable the TikTok community to enjoy an even greater connection with the film world, offering a new take on the Festival through content in the Festival’s official TikTok account, @sansebastianfes. This means that when the movie world rolls into San Sebastian in September, TikTok will become an interactive window sharing the essence of the Festival with the world.
José Luis Rebordinos, Director of the Festival, stresses that “for the San Sebastian Festival this partnership with TikTok is hugely important, because it enables us to connect with new audiences and explore new forms of connection with the public”.
