Events • Eat, Play, Cannes. The Cannes report by Pippa Bhatt for you exclusively on GoSee

02.07.2015 • This year it was GoSee London correspondent Pippa Bhatt's turn to fly to Cannes on assignment for GoSee. Pippa is probably best known for her agency Madam – and of course from rankinfilmreps. Working in the industry for an almost indecent time, she is quite a charmer, so we were sure she would bring home some nice lines – plus photos. We also have Pippa's Cannes résumé for you exclusively on GoSee.

"It’s the week after Cannes Lions, and that can mean a number of things. First & foremost, Recovery. Yes that’s a capital ‘R’, the whole word should probably be in capitals! Secondly, the business cards sifted through and emails of thanks promptly follow. Then comes the reflection. What a week. One of the greatest aspects of Cannes Lions is the representation of creatives and ad professionals within our industry from every corner of the globe. It is incredible. There is nowhere that we all come together for such a short time and on such a grand platform. Our wide reaching industry gathers on one street, and we see our old friends who have moved to new cities and have the...

YDA • 'Whatever you have in mind!' Young Director Award 2015 news and a fabulously decadent pool party for you on GoSee

01.07.2015 • The winners of the YDA Award 2015 in Cannes – aka Young Director Award – have been chosen. The cinema reception was unfortunately called off this year, but that didn't spoil the fun or success of the project whatsoever. Why not? It's very simple: Work on the new concept for 2016 is in full progress, and the location for the after-no-show party was a dream come true. Rosé in full flow on the sun-drenched French Riviera beach, chock full of directors, advertisers, ... it doesn't get any better than this!

Apropos dream – 'Wet Dream' by emerging director Djawid Hakimyar (from Filmakademie Baden-Wurttemberg) convinced the sophisticated jury of the YOUNG DIRECTORS AWARD and received Gold in the category 'FILM SCHOOL EUROPE'. And how could a slow-motion show of pictures from a decadent pool party convince the jury in Cannes? 'Pool-Cannes-Party'. It almost makes you feel like a traitor. But see for yourself. You'll find the further winners under the link YDAwards..

We asked CFP-E / YDA President François Chilot about this year's showcase and his plans: "YDA 2015 was a very good...

Events • Raise your mugs! The first Cannes Lions Beer Fest on La Croisette - an initiative of STAUD STUDIOS, EMENES film production and the author of Kill Your Agency

01.07.2015 • The first Cannes Lions German Beer Fest took place with more than 500 visitors on the beach of Cannes in parallel to Cannes Lions 2015. The three world-renowned Stuttgart-based creatives of Staudstudios, Emenes Filmproduktion, and Lukas-Pierre Bessis, the author of the book Kill your agency, got together to throw a party, the likes of which no one has ever seen before: an Oktoberfest on La Croisette.

"We figured, if we only threw a pool party somewhere up in the hills around Cannes, we would be just like the rest of the festival's parties, and wouldn't really make a difference," René Staud tells GoSee".

The success of the happening proves the party crew right. The Cannes Lions Beer Fest was the talk of the town, and with more than 500 guests – it was the place to be. Besides ice cold beer from southern Germany, games like Hau den Lukas, which is similar high striker, and a wide variety of fruit brandies, the band Original Alpencasanovas from Munich were the special highlight of the event and played Oktoberfest music for an authentic atmosphere until late in the night....

Events • HelliVentures : Catch the early bird – Rob Sherlock (Exec. Creative Director of ADK) is this year's winner at the water sports breakfast in Cannes

01.07.2015 • First one at the pier! Is what Rob Sherlock, Worldwide Executive Creative Director of ADK, was able to proudly shout out at the annual morning party. The CD, who became specialized in overseas markets while working for the Japanese agency ASATSU-DK (ADK), was previously Chief Creative Officer at Draftfcb for 12 years in Asia and America

Whether the top creative followed the call of the early bird and went to the beach or was washed ashore from the night before – that of course all stays in Cannes. The advertiser was the first to actively participate in the variety of water sports HELLIVENTURES had to offer, and together with the creatives, filmmakers, contactors, and producers arriving one by one, he enjoyed the breakfast and sports of the Munich-based film production company. 15 years Cannes – 15 years of getting up early – 15 years EARLY BIRD – this was good reason for Joachim Hellinger (interview on GoSee) and his team to produce a magazine which showcases their adventurous documentaries and action-packed commercials. We have photos from the event and impressions from the...

film • ‘WAVES FOR CHANGE’ - on the inspiring power of sport, or surfing to be exact - the viral by filmographer Florian BISON

29.06.2015 • Violence is never an answer. Florian BISON produced a viral for the Waves for Change organization, an innovative program that uses surfing as therapy for kids and young adults from Cape Town’s violence ridden townships, to successfully take their mind off their problems. The program includes surf training, a secure place and last but not least the feeling of belonging to a group. In addition to that, there is the possibility to discuss problems with a counselor at any time. Since its founding three years ago, the number of children participating grew from two per week to around 200.

“It was important for me to make the traumas and chaos that these young kids go through sensible for the viewer,” says Florian BISON. “Unlike many other NGO virals, I wanted to come up with something that is shocking, feels out of control and disturbing and illustrates how powerful sport is and what it can change.”

About - Waves for Change, Surf Therapy for Violent Communities. Waves for Change started organically at Muizenberg beach in Cape Town, South Africa. On occasional weekends and...

26.06.2015 • On Thursday evening, the first Anja Niedringhaus prize for courageous journalism was awarded at Berlin's E-Werk club, during the ceremonies attended by approximately 300 media representatives. Christiane Amanpour, CNN chief correspondent, and the ZDF journalist Barbara Hahlweg presented the award worth 20,000 US dollars to the Jerusalem resident photojournalist Heidi Levine.

The award was established in 2014 by the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), located in Washington DC. The non-profit organization is engaged for female journalists worldwide and supports them in their work as correspondents.
