Field Notes from Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity | New Directors

At Cannes Lions on Thursday, Saatchi & Saatchi hosted their unmissable, annual New Directors Showcase – a collection of the ground-breaking films by the filmmakers across the globe to watch now. This year’s theme was ‘Feel the Reel’. Audience members were given sensory wrist bands to wear that gauged reactions and lit up in different colours depending on the emotion that each film elicited. These are the films.
