Lexus Collaborates with The Weinstein Company to Produce Lexus Short Films Premiering in Early 2013

Toyota City, Japan, Nov 28, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - Lexus announces the collaborative production of a series of short films with The Weinstein Company, the multimedia production and distribution powerhouse that won eight Academy Awards in 2012. The films are to premier in early 2013.

Lexus is dedicated to surpassing customers' expectations, both with the luxury cars it builds and the luxury experience for its customers. With its new products, Lexus has introduced striking new designs and a more engaging driver's experience.

To highlight the new look and feel of the brand, Lexus approached The Weinstein Company to produce a series of short films that will offer similar levels of inspiration to viewers.

Lexus selected the short-film format as it represents a key expression of the future in cinematography. Each film will be developed by an individual director chosen from among the best up-and-coming talents in the industry. Each director will represent a different part of the world, as well as a different genre of filmmaking. Through these films, Lexus will demonstrate the powerful ability to be moved by innovative, dynamic story-telling that challenges the imagination and reinforces the idea that life is an amazing experience.

The details of the Lexus Short Films premier are to be announced at a later stage. In the meantime, the films' progress and production can be followed through www.lexusshortfilms.com beginning Wednesday, November 28.
