Best of the Cannes Lions

Goth Girl , the story of a young teenager whose Dad is incredibly supportive was my husband Dave’s favorite amongst the great line up of advertisements featured in the 2015 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. We saw the compilation of prize winning television ads at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Sunday afternoon.  

Of the more than fifty advertisements included in the show my favorite was This Girl Can which celebrated active British women doing their thing no matter how well they did it or how they looked doing it.  

The 2015 line up of advertisements from the Cannes Lions is one of the best ever.  It’s a great 107 minutes of entertainment!

The Parent Child Connection

We saw the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity award winners for advertising at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Wednesday. There were some excellent films on the program.  The three that really tugged at my heart strings were about the parent child relationship.


In Closer a young girl and her father try to reconnect after her mother’s death. 

Another film about a father daughter relationship I Love You Very Much was so touching. 

And finally Pick Them Back Up about mothers and Olympic athletes had me in tears.

You can see most of the Cannes Lions winners online. They are worth checking out.
