Saatchi & Saatchi has established a reputation for unearthing the new directors of tomorrow with the annual New Directors’ Showcase (NDS) at Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The NDS demonstrates Saatchi & Saatchi's commitment to supporting emerging directors and spotlighting the very best in creative talent. Since its inception in 1991, NDS has become one of the highlights of Cannes Lions.

In 2016 the Showreel featured 20 directors, including one Artificial Intelligence (AI) director. The question posed to the audience was whether they were able to identify the AI film, created as a collaboration between Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide, Team One and Zoic Labs in Los Angeles. The Showreel featured a trully international selection of directors hailing from Chile, Israel, Poland, The Netherlands, UK and the USA.
