shootout

straight 8 industry shootout is our format for ad industry companies to compete at straight 8 for charity

shootout is only open to ad industry companies to compete with their company name on the entry. every film made gets shown, often at an industry festival, regardless of how it came out.  unlike the main straight 8 competition, outright winners are voted for. this happens live at the event and the winning companies donate prize money to the charity of their choice

find out more about our various industry shootouts below and join our mailing list to be the first to hear our future announcements

the 3rd straight 8 industry shootout at CANNES was our biggest yet - 22 places taken, 22 companies delivered. and they all saw their films for the very first time, in competition with one another, at our screening in cannes in a 250-seat cinema - see here for details

and watch the winners here (more being posted daily - come back for those!)....
