Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase: ‘Hello, Future’


23 June 2011: Saatchi & Saatchi presents the best new directing talent from around the world at the 21st Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase (NDS) at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

The Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase is one of the highlights of the Festival, and has become one of the most popular events during Cannes week. Again this year, it takes place in The Grand Auditorium, with overspill into the Debussy.

To find the featured directors, Saatchi & Saatchi invites submissions from directors across the globe and uses its Network of some 140 offices worldwide, as well as relationships with key on-line sources. From an initial line up of several hundred directors, The Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide Creative Board chose the final selection, and only 17 directors made the cut.

Kate Stanners, Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi London, and worldwide spokesperson for the NDS, commented, “As the media landscape constantly evolves, the skills required of a great director are still based on an ability to tell a story, to engage their audience, be that through new techniques or skilled performance.”
