Cannes Lions International Festival Of Creativity 2019

A feature-length collection of the world's best tv and cinema ads!

The Cannes Lions International Festival Of Creativity is a mecca for advertising agencies from all over the world. Last year, over 90 nations were represented. From about 5000 entries, the judges at the Festival select winners of their coveted Bronze, Silver and Gold Lions, representing the best of the year’s advertising, in a myriad of categories.

Poster for the Cannes Lions International Festival Of Creativity 2019From the television and cinema categories, the Festival compiles a ‘winners reel’. The result is what you get to see at the ByTowne – 110 big-screen minutes of the most entertaining sales pitches you’ll see all year, representing top ad agencies from Brazil, the U.S., Canada, Germany, Australia, the U.K., and many more.

Some ads will be familiar, some will be very foreign. Many will be shown in their full, first-broadcast length. And all will be illuminating examples of short-form filmmaking at its commercial best!
