Young Director Award prepares to launch 2013 competition

Preparations are underway for the 15th anniversary of the CFP-E (Commercial Film Producers of Europe)/Shots Young Director Award. The competition is designed to give new filmmaking talent a chance to shine on the international stage.

When the competition opens, directors will be able to enter their short movies into categories including branded short film, animation and broadcast commercial. The call for entries will be made in February for the 19th April deadline.

“It's our 15th anniversary and we want to make this year special,” CFP-E President and Les Producers founder Francois Chilot told TLG: “With your help we hope to reach more new talents and in this way also make our show exceptional.”

Shortlisted films will be screened and winners announced on 20th June 2013 at Palais Stephanie in Cannes during the Cannes Lions Festival week. The Young Director Award website will be launched soon.
