Lionsgate is teaming with Google to introduce DISTRICT VOICES, the latest campaign in Google’s Art, Copy & Code project to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the two companies announced yesterday, October 20th.  Mockingjay – Part 1 is the third film in the global blockbuster Hunger Games franchise that has already grossed more than $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office.

 DISTRICT VOICES is a five episode series on YouTube that brings to life Panem, the fictional world of The Hunger Games, through videos featuring popular YouTube creators. Each episode of the series was created with a different creator, whose channel content aligns with a specific industry from one of the districts of Panem.

The videos were concepted and developed with the team from the YouTube Space LA and filmed on location there, and around Los Angeles. They provide a window into an expanded world of The Hunger Games and deliver original content to the passionate fan bases of both the films and the individual YouTube creators. Presented as programming from CAPITOL TV, the government-sanctioned television network of The Hunger Games, DISTRICT VOICES is a leading example of how YouTube is emerging as the best place to reach the key 18-34 year-old audience.

Global fan communities are watching more than 9 billion hours of video each month on YouTube, and the creators who participated in DISTRICT VOICES have a combined base of over 4.9 million subscribers and more than 550 million video views.

“Our mission has always been to engage our Hunger Games fans in the most innovative and authentic ways possible,” said Lionsgate’s EVP of Digital Marketing Danielle De Palma.  “We cannot think of a better partner than these incredible YouTube stars, who truly bring new content to life in the world of Panem and extend our storytelling to online audiences in exciting new directions.”

The worldwide phenomenon of The Hunger Games continues to set the world on fire with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which finds Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in District 13 after she literally shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong, from an adaptation by Suzanne Collins and produced by Nina Jacobson’s Color Force in tandem with producer Jon Kilik. The novel on which the film is based is the third in a trilogy written by Suzanne Collins that has over 65 million copies in print in the U.S. alone.

The schedule for DISTRICT VOICES on Capitol TV is as follows (all episodes airing at 4 p.m. EST/1 p.m. PST every day):

MADE WITH CODE is a new initiative designed to inspire millions of girls to write their own future with code.

Coding is the new literacy and gives you great power to create, innovate and quite literally change the world, but surprisingly few girls (<1% of high school girls) see computer science as part of their future.

Google, along with supporters, including Chelsea Clinton, Girls Inc., Girl Scouts of the USA, TechCrunch, Seventeen, Mindy Kaling, MIT Media Lab and National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), announced the Made with Code initiative on June 19, 2014 with a launch event that included a special presentation, performances by Icona Pop and iLuminate, and more, with over 150 girls from local NYC clubs (including Girl Scouts of the USA, Girls Inc., Girls Who Code, Black Girls Code) in attendance.
