Leading entertainment content company Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) 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 film, the two companies announced Monday.

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 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 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 an example of how YouTube is trying to reach the 18-34 year-old audience.

“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.
