The Day 6 of 60th International Festival of Creativity, Cannes, has been a bleak opening for India. India has five entries, out of the 158, in the Film Craft category.

Chrome Pictures, Mumbai, has its campaign 'Gondappa' produced for Lifebouy in the shortlist. The campaign, conceptualised by Lowe Lintas +Partners, Mumbai, promotes hand wash and has been chosen from Cinematography sub category.
