#CannesLions2017: Film Lions winners!

The 64th annual Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity hosted the Film Lions award ceremony on its final night, 24 June 2017, with another Gold Lion coming home to SA!
The Film Lions celebrate creativity of the moving image. Entries needed to demonstrate brilliant brand storytelling intended for a screen through filmed content created for TV, cinema, online and out-of-home experiences.


A total of 85 Film Lions were awarded from the shortlist of 271. The Grand Prix went to OMD UK, 4Creative and Channel 4 London for Channel 4 Paralympics' jazzy, upbeat We're the Superheroes,' which also won a Gold Integrated Lion on the night.

Find out more about Canadian drummer Alvin Law, a thalidomide survivor who can do more with his lower limbs than most do with their hands - he also plays the piano and trombone with his feet - in the video interview below:



Ogilvy Joburg also added to its haul with a Gold Lion for Cadbury Bubbly 'Pre-Joy', with production by Bomb Films, sound and composition by Howard Music, post-production work by Ministry of Illusion and media by Starcom Worldwide:
