Cannes Film Lions for 2009

The Film Lions at Cannes International Advertising Festival have been awarded. Of the 3453 entries in the Film category, the jury, chaired by David Lubars, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, BBDO North America, shortlisted 261 entries of which 16 were awarded Gold, 36 Silver and 35 Bronze Lions. Grand Prix was presented to Tribal DDB Amsterdam, The Netherlands, for “Carousel“, an innovative advertisement for the Philips Cinema 21:9 television. The recognition of an online film experience rather than television commercial had the jury considering splitting the category into two to provide for two Grand Prix awards, one for television and one for alternative media. However it was not to be. Read on for the Gold, Silver and Bronze Film Lions.
