New Directors’ Showcase 2015 – Saatchi & Saatchi

The Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase is open to directors of all film formats and styles. However, please note that directors are not eligible for consideration if they directed any film ‘specifically made for advertising purposes’ before June 2013. The term ‘specifically made for advertising purposes’ is defined as any moving image commissioned with either production or media funded by an advertiser. By submitting their work, directors are confirming their eligibility.

The Saatchi & Saatchi Network of 130 offices in 70 countries is responsible for finding the best new directors through our heads of broadcast production, creative directors, and key internet sites. Some 500 directors review films as part of the selection process. From there, a shortlist is compiled and the final selection for the reel is made by the Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide Creative Board. The Worldwide Creative Board makes its decisions based on the following criteria:

  • The ability of the director to execute an idea on screen
  • An innovative technique or style
  • Outstanding directorial skill

The New Directors Showcase is free to enter. There is no entry fee. Please send a link to your film to one of the following people by Monday 6th April 2015:
