ADFEST Is Recruiting “Fabulous Five” New Directors for 2019
“Fabulous Five is an incredible opportunity – many of the directors who have screened their films at ADFEST have gone on to achieve great things. As a result, we have expanded the program from Fabulous Four to Fabulous Five, giving more directors the chance to make their first big break,” explains Vinit Suraphongchai, Chairman of ADFEST.
ADFEST is inviting directors to write 5-minute film scripts inspired by the theme of ADFEST 2019, “TMRRW.TDAY”.
The Film Craft & New Director jury will then vote for their favourite scripts, and the directors with the most votes will be declared ADFEST’s ‘Fabulous Five’ by 1st February. They will have five weeks to produce their films in time to premiere at ADFEST 2019, which runs from 20th March to 23rd March in Pattaya, Thailand.
Ali Brown, Partner and Executive Producer at PRETTYBIRD in Los Angeles, is leading the Fabulous Five judging process as Jury President of Film Craft and New Director at ADFEST 2019. “I love the idea of Fabulous Five as a platform to make sure emerging talent is being seen by the people who can make a difference in their careers. I also think the theme, TMRRW.TDAY, will inspire some incredible ideas. It’s the perfect theme for filmmakers to show their inventiveness and perspectives,” she says.
ADFEST will provide return economy airfare, ground transportation, accommodation, and a full delegate registration for each selected director to attend ADFEST 2019. To find out more about eligibility and script submissions click here or contact gNat@ADFEST.com for more details.
