Commenting on his jury position this year, Marco Bezerra says, “Film is the most important category in any advertising festival. It’s a discipline that never gets old and it’s basic to all others in our business. Film is an exercise of storytelling that can be extended to Branded Content, Gaming and so many other categories. It’s a truly integrated piece where the Director and the production company is as important as the Creative Team. To be in a film jury in a festival such as the LIA is like a dream coming true.”
