Cinemark announces SA’s Young Lions to compete at Cannes
Following a very close judging process of the shortlisted top 20 entries last week, Prince Zwane and Kaylee Germann, from Publicis Machine Johannesburg, have been announced as South Africa’s winning team for the 2018 Cannes Young Lions competition currently underway around the world. After a brief break in 2016, Cinemark has once again been the festival’s local representative, with its sponsorship of the Film category.
The two had just 48 hours to complete the task, from brief to concept shooting, editing and the final production of a 60-second commercial, and now they will attend the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, 18–22 June 2018, in Cannes, France. During the festival, they will also compete in the global Cannes Young Lions competition in the Film category, which follows the same 48-hour format. The winning team’s commercial will also be flighted in Ster-Kinekor cinemas, and will be used by Ster-Kinekor’s Vision Mission (CSI flagship programme) to continue to drive-eye care awareness.
The second-place was achieved by David Blakey-Milner and Daniel Edwards from Wunderman in Johannesburg, with third position going to Tarryn Prior and Devaksha Vallabhjee from Ogilvy Cape Town.
