Grey NJ United's 'Face/Off' for Kasikornbank—the nearly-as-funny followup to "Friendshit'—led the pack for APAC agencies in the Film category Friday night at Cannes Lions 2019, winning a matching set of Silver Lions (in separate sub-categories).

Publicis Singapore also won a silver, for 'One in a million' on behalf of Vicks. In addition, APAC work won eight Bronze Lions, with Thailand and New Zealand each winning two and Australia, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore each winning one.

Globally, the category yielded 77 awards, including a Grand Prix for Droga5 for its series of films for The New York Times.
