Nokia today announced that the premiere of Nokia Productions, the first user generated multimedia film, will be held tonight at 8:45 pm PST at the Nokia Plaza- LA Live with a simultaneous online premiere.
T-Mobile USA, Inc. partnered with Nokia to develop the Nokia Productions film which was built entirely by everyday people, using mobile devices to generate and submit original content which was then combined into one artistic multimedia film created by Director Spike Lee.
Lee will be in attendance for the film premiere and a special live performance by musician Avril Lavigne. Nokia and T-Mobile invited consumers to attend the premiere, giving away free tickets to the event at select T-Mobile retailers.

Lee invited the general public to submit their original text, music, video or images for each of the three acts - birth, life and death - to www.nokiaproductions.com. Over 4,000 pieces of original content were uploaded and over 350,000 visitors accessed the Nokia Productions site during the entry period, April to September 2008. Nokia also engaged up-and-coming filmmakers to contribute to the project through a partnership with the Disposable Film Festival.
