AdFest begins its search for next year's 'Fabulous Four' directors

The search for the Asia-Pacific region’s ‘Fabulous Four’ directors is on again as AdFest invites directors and assistant directors in the region (including Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East) to submit short film scripts inspired by the theme ‘Co-Create the Future’, which is the theme of AdFest 2014.

Eligible entrants are now invited to submit their five-minute short film scripts by December 20, 2013.

After the Film Craft & New Director jury panel has read all the scripts submitted, they will vote for their favourite. The four directors who receive the highest scores will become the 2014 Fabulous Four New Directors.

These directors will have one month to produce their scripts, which must be one of the first seven works they have ever directed. Their films will premiere at AdFest 2014, which will be held in Thailand on March 6-8, 2014.

“Fabulous Four is one of the only programmes in the world that helps directors launch their careers and build their reels,” said Jimmy Lam, President, AdFest. “It is incredibly difficult for emerging directors to get their work seen by busy creative directors. Fabulous Four is a shortcut for these directors to demonstrate their talents and do some serious networking.”

Vinit Suraphongchai, Chairman of the AdFest Working Committee added here, “Fabulous Four is one of AdFest’s most important pillars. It supports our philosophy of nurturing creative talent, and is always hugely popular with delegates.”
