Adfest Unveils This Year's Fabulous Four
ADFEST is pleased to unveil this year’s “Fabulous Four”, who come from Manila, Fukuoka, Mumbai and Tokyo.
From over 30 script submissions, these four directors wrote scripts that won the most votes from the Film Craft Lotus and New Director Lotus Jury.
The Fabulous Four are:
• Anya Nicola Isabel Zulueta, Go Motion Productions, Manila
• Hiroki Odagiri, T&E Inc., Fukuoka
• Pranav Harihar Sharma, Film Farm India Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai
• Tomoya Kuge, TYO Camp KAZ, Tokyo
Their short films will premiere at ADFEST 2015 in a session moderated by Michael Hilliard, executive producer at Finch in Sydney, who is jury president of this year’s Film Craft Lotus and New Director Lotus Jury.
“There were some great film ideas entered into Fab Four this year – even at script stage I got a very clear sense of where the filmmakers will take the projects visually. We were flooded with scripts from all over, so we have productions happening in many different regions. We will have a great range of style, tone and character – I can't wait to see the films realised,” says Hilliard.
Every year, ADFEST invites new directors and assistant directors to write a short film script inspired by the festival’s theme, which this year is “Be Bad!”
The 2015 Fabulous Four directors now have just weeks to cast, direct, shoot and edit their film scripts in time for their premiere at ADFEST on Saturday 21st March 2015, 11.30am.
