ADCAN’s mission is three-pronged: to shine a light on various global issues and the charities addressing them, to foster the careers of unsigned talent in creative industries, and to promote the use of creativity as a force for good. It’s this circle of benefits that makes ADCAN so unique.
ADCAN partners with a group of different charities each year and invites unsigned filmmakers and animators from across the globe to participate in a free-to-enter competition by creating an original 30-60 second film inspired by briefs designed to promote each cause. All films are given to the charities to use in perpetuity, and the winning and shortlisted filmmakers are invited to attend career-enhancing workshops in London and Los Angeles led by ADCAN’s industry partners and judges.
The ADCAN Awards have proved a veritable breeding ground for new talent and many winning and shortlisted alumni have secured full time employment with leading production companies, including ADCAN partners Rattling Stick and Partizan. The organisation has established a wide network of filmmaking experts who have offered support, stewardship and guidance to previous entrants.
