Isn't the most overused cliche in the history of advertising that line from "Poltergeist II": "They're baaaaaack?" Aren't you sick of hearing it? Oh, speaking of which, they're baaaaaack; after a hiatus of a few years one of the CIFF's most popular attractions returns. It's a feature-length compilation of the best of international TV spots, visual ads that emphasize the astonishing variety, wit and ingenuity of advertisers from the UK, Australia, Italy, Japan and even the USA. Every year during the Cannes Film Festival, commercials from around the world and awarded ?Lions.? ? The International Advertising Festival - Cannes Lions - is the largest rendezvous for marketing and advertising professionals from all over the world and the most prestigious advertising awards. This compilation will feature all of the gold, silver, and bronze Lion Award winners. You will see commercials from Proctor and Gamble, McDonalds, Daimler Chrysler, and of course Budweiser. Make sure you purchase your tickets, this show frequently sells out. So that's "whaaaassuuuuuup?!"
