WORTHINGTON WORTHY OF CANNES FILM JURY, ESLINGER GETS TITANIUM GIG
While still not officially confirmed, the word is that the New Zealand Film Juror for Cannes this year will be Nick Worthington, ECD of Publicis Mojo, Auckland. The Cannes Direct juror is likely to be Matty Burton, senior creative at Saatchi & Saatchi, Auckland (at The Glue Society, Sydney, he won a Titanium Lion last year and the DM Grand Prix the year before, both for Virgin Mobile). And last but not least, New Zealand is tipped to get a Titanium Lions jury member, likely to be Tom Eslinger (pictured), world-renowned CD of Saatchi Interactive, Auckland. Eslinger joins BMF's Warren Brown on this exclusive nine person jury of the best creative minds in the world under chairman Dave Lubars, chief creative officer of BBDO USA.
