Our inaugural film festival at Cannes was a blast. And we’re planning to do it all over again next year. In the meantime SheSays and our partner, Voice of a Woman, would like to thank everyone who submitted their work, our judges and all the lovely people who came to Les Arcades Cinema on a very hot afternoon on June 21st to support the event.
And huge congratulations to our winners:
- ALICE TONGE Creative Director for WE'RE THE SUPERHUMANS
- THE MUNDO SISTERS Directors for A FIELD BETWEEN
- Naomi Taylor who won the VOWSS 2017 STUDENT AWARD
- And Collen DeCourcy who won the VOWSS 2017 DISTINCTION AWARD
The VOWSS screened a selection of the best short films – commercials, branded content, dramas, documentaries, art/experimental-films and music-videos, created by women internationally. This will become a yearly thing at Cannes Lions, making women’s work the most coveted creative content of the festival.
Why? In the words of our co-founder Laura Jordan-Bambach:
“We’re giving women a platform to share their creativity, not just show work that represents women. And to help senior creative women break through that barrier where the only thing they get to talk about is the lack of women in the industry or how women are portrayed in advertising, not ‘I’m a rockstar, here’s my work’.”
