Five winners of the Film Information Council’s monthly film marketing awards have been selected by the group’s members as finalists for the best-marketed motion picture of 1994.
Nominees are: TriStar’s “Philadelphia,” Gramercy’s “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” Buena Vista’s “The Lion King,” Paramount’s “Forrest Gump” and Miramax’s “Pulp Fiction.”
The nominees were announced by FIC executive chairman Richard Kahn, awards committee chairman Rusty Citron and co-chair Rick Markovitz.
In naming its top award, FIC will honor the late Charles M. Powell, an FIC member who died in 1991 after 32 years in the film industry. Powell was head of marketing at Columbia, MGM and MCA/Universal.
