ADFEST to recognise region’s top emerging directors via Fabulous Four & New ‘Film School’ award for students

Annual advertising festival, ADFEST will take place from 16th – 19th March, 2016 next year. The festival looks at unearthing the region’s top emerging directors as part of its ‘Fabulous Four’ program, which supports new and emerging directors by putting their work in front of the world’s most influential production executives and agency producers.

Directors and assistant directors based in Asia and the Pacific (including Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East) will have to submit five-minute film scripts inspired by the theme ‘Creative Intelligence’, which is also the theme of ADFEST 2016.

Jimmy Lam, President, ADFEST said, “Fabulous Four gives directors the chance to present their films in front of a live audience of creative professionals. It has the power to transform a director’s career by developing their reel and giving them the chance to network with the industry’s most influential agency producers,” The deadline for script submissions is Friday 1st January 2016.

ADFEST 2016’s Film Craft and New Director jury panel will vote on their favourite scripts, and the top-scoring directors will become ADFEST’s ‘Fabulous Four’ for 2016.

The directors will have less than six weeks to bring their short film scripts to life in time to premiere at ADFEST 2016, which runs from 16th – 19th March in Pattaya, Thailand.
