    Over the past ten years CWC has presented an annual program of witty, creative commercials that won British Arrows, the UK’s advertising awards. This year, thanks to Covid-19 we have a special virtual show consisting of  standout selections from previous programs, compiled by the London-based Arrows staff in collaboration with the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.  Rounding out the selection are the winners of a timely “Made in Lockdown” competition.

☀ We often include a “classics” segment in our annual CWC presentations – our personal favorites over a decade of Arrows. This year’s “best-of” program has some overlap, but you will see many adverts not previously shown by CWC, as the choices span four decades and have been selected by others.

    You’ll find loads of self-deprecating humor, social satire, political provocation, musical sequences, celebrities, and naughty innuendo, all influenced by developing technologies and changing attitudes. This “greatest hits” compilation is not only entertaining, but provides a retrospective of filmmaking styles over four decades, as well as a history of the evolution of products and technology.

    Spanning 45 years, these are some of the best of the best — including ads directed by creative luminaries Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast), Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball), and the late Alan Parker (Pink Floyd: The Wall).

Special thanks to the Walker Art Center for facilitating this year’s virtual screening!
