Earlier this year, Magnum ice-cream teamed up with i-D to create a short film competition called "Be True To Your Pleasure", inviting emerging filmmakers to send in their short film ideas about personal pleasure and the joy of letting go. The three winners were announced in August and received funding, production support and a mentorship from award-winning filmmaker Xavier Dolan to help make their ideas reality.
