Inside the Cannes Lions judging room

DSC02692.jpgForget what you heard about Cannes not living up to expectations this year. Sure, delegates and standards may be down this year, but for the nearly 6,000 delegates there is still the same levels of excitement in the air. Festival CEO Terry Savage is very upbeat. 6,000 delegates is 50% down on last year, but as he points out, due to the huge growth of the festival over the past few years this delegate total is the same as three years ago.
For Campaign Brief Asia Saturday night was a chance to 'acclimatise' before the fun and games start. Last night was spent catching up with old friends (like Donald Gunn) and meeting new ones, including Jose Molla the founder of La Communidad Miami & Buenos Aires (Jose, pictured 3rd on the right, is creator of one of CBAsia's favourite spots from last year - the brilliant Buenos Aires Independent Film Festival). As well as the Lions festival Cannes is alive with the annual Music festival - as you can imagine the standard of local women (and men) in the streets is outstanding!
