LIA has interviewed Ali Rez, this year’s TV/Cinema and Online Film Jury President and Chief Creative Officer MENAP at Impact BBDO, on LIA judging, trends and this year’s winners.
“The jury itself was very diverse, which is always very amazing. Not only from a geographical point of view, but also (from a professional point of view), as we had a producer amongst our group, which was good to get that perspective, as well. The vibe was very friendly and I think everyone got to learn something in this jury. We debated quite a bit, espeically when it came to differing viewpoints based on where we were each coming from, but it was all very professional and all very respectful, which is the best you can expect from a really good group…”
