PRESS RELEASE
ENTRIES: 24 NEW DIRECTORS ARE IN THE RUNNING TO BE THIS YEAR’S “FABULOUS FOUR”
BANGKOK: ADFEST is pleased to announce that 24 up-and-coming directors from 11 cities in the Asia Pacific are in the running to be this year’s ‘Fabulous Four’.


Fabulous Four is the region’s most respected showcase of emerging directors. Every year, new Directors and Assistant Directors are invited to submit a five-minute short film script based on the theme of ADFEST, and this year’s theme is ‘Fast Forward’.


ADFEST received 24 short film scripts this year, including five scripts from Dhaka, four from Tokyo, three from Shanghai, three from Sydney, two from Melbourne, two from Beijing as well as others received from Jakarta, Hong Kong, Hangzhou, Quezon and Selangor Darul Ehsan.


“We are delighted that 24 aspiring directors from 11 different cities are in the running to be se lected as this year’s Fabulous Four,” says ADFEST President Jimmy Lam. “Fabulous Four is remains the region’s top career launching pad for up-and-coming directors – a chance for them to make their first ‘big break’,” says Lam.


Vinit Suraphongchai, Chairman of the ADFEST Working Committee, says ADFEST is committed to supporting the careers of emerging creative professionals. “The Fabulous Four concept is very similar to the Young Lotus Workshop: young directors are given a brief, and the Fabulous Four directors who are se lected to direct their own short film then come to ADFEST to showcase their films to an audience of the region’s top creatives. They get very good credentials and recognition after taking part in this short film initiative.”


When this year’s Fabulous Four directors are announced in February, they will have just one month to direct a short film, which will premiere at ADFEST 2012 on the last day of the festival, Tuesday 20th March.
