The Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase started in 1991, and has become one of the highlights of the annual Cannes International Festival of Creativity.
The Showcase has a reputation for unearthing the new directors of tomorrow and shows Saatchi & Saatchi’s commitment to spotlighting and nurturing creative talent.
It features directors from around the world, with an eclectic mix, which may include commercials, short films, titles, animation, music promos, or examples of new filmic techniques.
Many featured directors have gone on to seriously successful careers. Tarsem, Michel Gondry, Mark Romanek, Spike Jonze, Ivan Zacharias, Kinka Usher, Danny Kleinman and Jonathan Glazer included.
The 2013 showcase was presented in Cannes on 20th June with the theme ‘Just for Hits’. Entries for next year’s Showcase will open early 2014.
