Brussels - With talk of the Croisette, the Casino, and hotels like the Martinez, the Majestic, the Carlton and the Miramar, you could be forgiven for thinking that this year's prestigious Creative Club of Belgium (CCB) awards were being held in the jewel of the French Riviera, Cannes. It's actually taking place this week in Knokke, but that hasn't prevented the organisers giving the event the theme of 'Comme à Cannes'.
One of the highlights of the 'real' Cannes International Advertising Festival each June is without a doubt the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase, where the best of the best of new directors from around the world are presented - which this year will be held on Thursday, 19th June.
But not to be outdone, Saatchi & Saatchi Brussels are bringing a bit more of that special Cannes feeling to Knokke by proudly presenting the best Belgian young directors during their inaugural Saatchi & Saatchi Belgian New Directors' Showcase. The event will be introduced by the agency's Creative Director, Jan Teulingkx, and contains work from about 20 talented new Belgian directors.
Jan Teulingkx, Creative Director Saatchi & Saatchi Brussels: "It has been a very long and difficult selection but the result is a splendid reel you just can't afford to miss."
Marc Michils, CEO Saatchi & Saatchi Brussels: "The Saatchi & Saatchi Belgian New Directors' Showcase is an example of what we like to do: looking around curiously, discovering new possibilities, presenting nice stuff worth discussing, promoting young talent. Be our guest: come, watch and enjoy."
Join them at 2pm on Friday, 23rd May, in the Great Room at the Knokke Casino during the CCB gala for 30 minutes packed with Belgium's finest young talent.
