ADFEST Hunts For Asia's Hottest Young Directors

ADFEST is inviting the region’s most talented young directors to submit their scri pts to next year’s ‘Fabulous Four’ competition in a quest to find the region’s Best New Director.

Entrants must submit a five-minute scri pt based on the festival’s theme, ‘Made In Asia ‘, by 12 December 2008. These scri pts will be judged by next year’s Jury for the ADFEST Film Craft Lotus and New Director Lotus.

The winning ‘Fabulous Four’ will be invited to produce their short films, which will screen to an international audience at ADFEST between 19-21 March 2009.

The ‘Fabulous Four’ competition offers an excellent opportunity for young directors to showcase their talents to the world’s most respected creative directors.

“ADFEST is passionate about celebrating the role that young directors play in our industry. The Fabulous Four is one of the highlights of the festival, we are very proud to discover some of the region’s most talented new directors every year,” says Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST.

ADFEST will provide each of the Fabulous Four with airfares, accommodation and registration passes to next year’s festival in Pattaya, Thailand. To be eligible to enter, the Director must be based in the Asia Pacific; and the short film, if selected as one of the Fabulous Four, must be one of the first 7 films ever directed by the Director.

The deadline for scri pt submissions is Friday 12 December 2008.
