Jon Kamen heads jury for new Film Craft category
The new Film Craft Lions, honouring the skills and quality of craft and technique in the filmmaking process, will be chaired by award winning Jon Kamen, who has founded and built one of the world's most respected content companies, @radical.media.
More than an occasional tourist in Cannes, Jon serves as the Chairman and CEO of @radical.media, a global company that is practically the model of the current day transmedia company.
The company is respected for its successful navigation into the worlds of branded, digital and entertainment media, while continuing to produce award-winning films that originally earned its reputation at Cannes Lions.
Jon has served as an executive producer or producer of Academy Award-winning, Grammy Award-winning, Emmy Award-winning and Spirit Award-winning, features films, documentaries, TV series and specials such as The Fog of War, 10 Days That Unexpectedly Changed America and Mad Men.
His company has been twice honoured with the Palme d'Or award, presented to the best production company at Cannes Lions, The Smithsonian Co-oper-Hewitt National Design Award for Communication Design and just about every accolade associated with the advertising industry.
"Jon has long been seen as a visionary in his innovative approach to the business, much admired worldwide," says Philip Thomas, CEO of the Festival.
