CANNES (AdAge.com) -- While they wait for the official one, the crowd at the International Advertising Festival is buzzing about their own unofficial shortlist. The three spots most talked about as candidates for the Film Grand Prix are these:

XBOX'S CHAMPAGNE
Client: Microsoft Corp.
Brand: Xbox
Title: Champagne
Agency: Bartle Bogle Hegarty, London

Although banned from broadcast by U.K. regulators as too morbid, this birth-to-death spot is a favorite to win at Cannes.

LEVI'S ODYSSEY
Client: Levi Strauss & Co.
Brand: Engineered Jeans
Title: Odyssey
Agency: Bartle Bogle Hegarty

An amazing visual effects work depicts two people crashing through walls as they run a race.

NIKE'S TAG
Client: Nike
Brand: Nike
Title: Tag
Agency: Wieden & Kennedy

All the people in a dense urban landscape involve themselves in a sprawling game of tag.
