Saatchi & Saatchi to launch 25x25 film experiment at the New Directors' Showcase at Cannes Lions

25x25 LOGO-thumb-300x300-187090.jpgAt Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on Thursday 25 June, Saatchi & Saatchi will reveal a film created by 25 New Directors' Showcase illuminati.  To celebrate 25 years of the NDS Saatchi & Saatchi invited 25 now distinguished directors to revisit their original film from the Showcase archive.  The unique 25-minute film - titled '25x25' - will be premiered at the Palais des Festivals during a one-off screening sponsored by Corbis, a leading digital media company.
Says Pablo Del Campo, worldwide creative director of Saatchi & Saatchi: "25x25 is a celebration to thank the amazing directors who have made the NDS possible, and is testament to the enduring popularity of the Showcase."
Following the premiere of 25x25, the NDS 'Class of 2015' will be revealed in the screening of the 2015 Showreel.
Says Jake Scott, director:  "As accolades go, I think being selected for the New Directors' Showcase was of the highest honour. When you're just starting out and full of enthusiasm, but also self-doubt, an affirmation like this is fantastically energizing to your confidence. It's inspiring to see the selections made each year and even a little intimidating. I still think it's one of the most interesting aspects of the festival."
Says Daniel Kleinman, director: "I'm sure being selected for NDS early in my career brought me more attention than I might have had otherwise. I quite like attention, and welcomed the boost to my nascent stratospheric career. Thanks Saatchi & Saatchi."
