Ping Pong

  • Luke Neve
We were approached by BritDoc to run the PR for Ping Pong, a documentary film which follows the over-80s world table tennis championships in Inner Mongolia.

Following its UK premier at Sheffield Doc/Fest and a theatrical cinema release across the UK, we also worked on on its DVD release, together with a special project to screen the film in over 2,000 care homes across the UK, in partnership with Age UK. The film was also screened as part of the Cultural Olympiad for London 2012.

With massive interest from media, coverage included a 6 page feature in the Telegraph Magazine, a Guardian Weekend magazine profile, a lead feature on the Guardian’s health pages, a feature in The Times, cast appearances on BBC Breakfast TV news and BBC’s The One Show plus Film of the Month in Saga Magazine.

Margaret has managed press campaigns for many UK film releases including Finding Vivian Maier (Soda Pictures), Catfish (Momentum), Teenage (Soda Pictures), Lore, (Artificial Eye), Kid With A Bike (Artificial Eye), Two Years at Sea (Soda Pictures), Harmony Korine's Trash Humpers (Warp Films) as well as for a whole host of film festivals including East End Film Festival, Kinoteka Polish Film Festival, Flatpack Festival, Cambridge Film Festival and Abandon Normal Devices.
