From 25 October, the campaign created by DDB will focus on celebrating iconic film locations with two humorous cinema ads, 'Ghostbusters' and 'When Harry met Sally'.
The theme and strapline of the campaign is "Turning the camera on locations".
Volkswagen will also screen classic films in the places they were filmed. The series will kick off with a screening of the cult classic 'An American Werewolf in London' at the wolf's resting place, ZSL London Zoo, on Halloween night, 31 October.
DDB has also created a dedicated website, seefilmdifferently.com, to house all film-related content. The site will showcase forthcoming events, interactive movie tools and exclusive online editorial features.
Volkswagen has partnered with film magazine, Little White Lies, film specialists elevenfiftyfive, and LoveFilm, to create new and original material to share with fans, from interviews with actors and directors, and inside news on the latest releases, to behind-the-scenes stories from cult movies.
This content will be distributed through a dedicated Facebook group, Twitter feed, YouTube and film enthusiast forums, to give fans the opportunity to share and debate their opinions on film.
Natalie Lamont, Volkswagen communications manager, said: "Volkswagen is of course all about cars, but we love film as well. Our 'See film differently' platform is about sharing this passion with other fans and enabling them to see films in an unexpected, intelligent and interactive way."
