TORONTO (April 11, 2014) – With more access than ever before, MTV kicks off the blockbuster summer season with four influential brands bringing THE 2014 MTV MOVIE AWARDS to Canadian viewers through exciting activations, brand integrations, and contesting.

With just a few days until the awards are handed out, MTV also announces the first-ever Canadian Twitter Amplify campaign for a Bell Media Entertainment Specialty channel, through a partnership with SCENE, Canada’s first and only entertainment rewards program. The innovative Twitter Amplify campaign will see video clips taken directly from the SCENE correspondent on the ground in L.A. posted across the @MTVCanada Twitter channel. SCENE will sponsor the branded video player and be featured in a 3-8 second pre-and post-roll clip on six of the 60-90 second video tweets. The videos will showcase highlights from before, during, and after the ceremony, including backstage footage and not-to-be-missed moments. The content will also include the winner announcement of the first-ever Canada’s Fan Choice Award, as voted by SCENE members. Additional engagement will be driven by custom #hashtags, links to the SCENE website, brand mentions, and promoted video tweets. The content all happens in real-time throughout the star-studded excitement of THE 2014 MTV MOVIE AWARDS.
