DDB and Colenso keep Cannes hope alive with film shortlistings

After last year's big haul for the Kiwi agencies at Cannes, 2011 is looking decidedly average. But there's still a chance for some late glory after DDB and Colenso picked up two nominations each in the film category.  Kiwi agencies came away with nothing in the fim category last year but DDB's Lucky Dog spot for NZ Lotteries, produced by The Sweet Shop and Milk Run for Volkswagen, produced by Robber's Dog have been shortlisted, while Colenso BBDO got the nod for Rear View Girls for Levi's Jeans by Flying Fish in the internet film category alongside 40 others and Beer - The Untold Story for DB Export in the alcoholic drinks section.
