As usual, the YDA ceremony will be showcasing, celebrating and rewarding the best new films from a host of global directing talents on June 21 at the JW Marriott theatre in Cannes. Before the ceremony, though, there will be a panel discussion and, this year, the theme of the talk is that of creative relationships.
shots editor, Danny Edwards, will be talking to South African director Terence Neale and his producer Rozanne Rocha-Gray about their creative partnership and how it works, before being joined on stage by founding partner of New York agency Johannes Leonardo, Ferdinando Verderi and Jenny Pham, adidas Originals’ senior director, global brand marketing & communications. The quartet, who have worked together on award-winning spots for adidas Originals, will discuss how trust, talent and togetherness can foster great work.
This year’s Young Director Award Ceremony will be held at:
Marriott Théatre – Palais Stéphanie, 50 bd de la Croisette, Cannes
4pm June 21st 2018 – Doors open 3pm
