Saatchi & Saatchi | New Directors' Showcase

The New Directors' Showcase started in 1991, and has become one of the highlights of the Cannes International Festival of Creativity. It has a reputation for unearthing the new directors of tomorrow and shows Saatchi & Saatchi's commitment to supporting emerging directors and spotlighting the very best in creative talent. 

Entries are now open for the New Directors' Showcase 2016. 

The 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 2014. They may have directed all other formats for longer. 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.

To submit please send a link to your work to The deadline has now been exended until 12th April.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Showcase we have created a yearbook documenting every film featured. You can view this archive below. If you are interested in getting a copy of the yearbook please email
