PRESS RELEASE
FESTIVAL: ADFEST PRESENTS THE WORLD’S MOST INSPIRING REELS FROM THE GUNN REPORT, YOUNG DIRECTOR AWARD, LA SHORTS AND D&AD
BANGKOK: ADFEST will present some of the world’s most inspiring reels of award-winning TVCs, short films and campaigns, including The Gunn Report’s ‘100 Best Commercials of the 20th Century’.


Delegates at ADFEST will also enjoy screenings of this year’s winning short films from LA Shorts, the largest short film festival in the world, and Young Director Award, which is specifically dedicated to beginners. Young Director Award is overseen by the Commercial Film Producers of Europe (CFP-E) and Shots magazine.


Meanwhile, D&AD’s ‘Black Pencil Showreel’ will also screen at ADFEST, featuring the world’s most groundbreaking TV commercials and film over five decades.


At The Gunn Report’s screening of ‘100 Best Commercials of the 20th Century’, delegates can stop concentrating on ADFEST’s stellar line-up of speakers for an hour or so, and sit back and enjoy. The reel contains the world’s best commercials from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s.


“Watching ‘100 Best Commercials of the 20th Century’ is a bit like getting into a time machine. It brought me back to my college life when I actually studied many of those great TVCs, which triggered me to join the ranks as an ad agency creative person,” says Jimmy Lam, ADFEST President.


ADFEST will also screen the 2011 winners from the Young Director Award (www.youngdirectoraward.com), which has supported and promoted debuting international creative talent in commercial film production since 1998.


LA Shorts will present a se lection of its 2011 Winners, including nine short films from around the world. The se lection includes ‘After The Credit’ and ‘Light’ from Australia, and ‘Paynee FC’ from Thailand. LA Shorts Fest takes place annually in California, and attracts more than 8,000 moviegoers, filmmakers, and entertainment professionals every year.


ADFEST 2012 takes place on 18th – 20th March, 2012 at PEACH, Royal Cliff Hotels Group, Pattaya, Thailand.  For further information, please visit www.adfest.com
