Running Themes

After speaking to branding expert, Evert Ympa about my project. I decided to try and encompass some of the older SUFF branding into my work. The screen-shot of Simone Mareuil in the film "Un Chien Andalou" is currently being used as the branding. An idea would be to re-work this image and make it my own. Various festival use a running theme in their branding. This includes the Rotterdam Film Festival, the Holland Festival and Kieler Woche.

TOKO's Sydney Design Festival Collateral

I know that it slightly off-topic of film festivals, but I found some beautiful, inventive collateral by sydney design duo TOKO, which in highly inspiring. In true festival form, it is designed on-trend yet still manages to be edgy and different. I particularly love the folding of the flyer.

Korean Film Festival

After seeing the poster at the Circular Quay Dendy, I had to have a look at the Korean Film Festivals website. The festival begins later this month, I will have to make sure I pick up a program (available after August 15 from the Dendy).

The branding is modern but minimalist. So far it the closest film festival branding that I have seen to what I envisage my major project. As a short-lived festival, the branding is fashionable and for the moment. It grabs attention, without being brash. I would love to keep this simplicity, but in my project must remember to be more experimental in my secondary language.

Film Festival Trailers

My tutor Gabe, suggested creating some film collateral as part of SUFF's branding. The previous are some film trailers I found that give a better understanding of what these festivals want to convey.
