Conill has won a Silver Lion at the the 61st Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Its 90-second commercial for the Consulate General of Argentinas New Cinema Film Festival earned the honor in the Film category.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2014

Conill, one of the most highly awarded Latino agencies in the U.S., has earned a Silver Film Lion at the 61st Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in Cannes, France.

Robocop, Conills 90-second commercial for the Consulate General of Argentinas New Cinema Film Festival, scooped up the award in the Film category. Based on a true story, the work illustrates how a mans life is complicated because his father names him after the main character of his favorite movie Robocop. After much teasing and tormenting, the closing tagline reads "If a movie is going to change your life, make it the right one."

The idea is grounded on a peculiar reality where parents in Latin American countries will sometimes name their children after characters or words they have seen or heard. It may seem crazy, but giving children ridiculous names happens more frequently in Latin America than most might imagine, said Conill Los Angeles VP / Creative Director Mario Granatur. Its whats led to such classics as Usnavi and of course, Robocop.

All told, the agency has taken home 16 awards at such creative competitions as Cannes Lions, The Wave Festival, U.S. Hispanic Idea Awards, Festival Iberoamericano De La Publicidad (FIAP), El Sol, Festival Caribe and the Mercury Awards.
