Presentation details

Typophile Film Fest 5

Entertainment 30 | Room Anahuac room 1
Thursday 29 October | 18:00 – 19:00

Duration: 60 minutes

The Typophile Film Fest 5 is a one hour selection of typographic films hailing from Portugal, The Netherlands, Austria, Russia, Canada and the US. The films vary in subject matter and style; creating a dynamic presentation of motion design, typographic animation, short stories and documentary-style interviews. The average piece is about 3 minutes long, ensuring appeal to a broad design audience. The content is designed to plug in to larger events as a follow-up to an evening keynote or as an evening presentation prior to a party or mixer. The content provides a break from the intellectual stimulation of a design conference. This year’s show includes broadcast motion design, documentaries and typographic eye candy from MK12, Trollbäck + Company, Juan Leguizamon and includes other student work. The motion graphics for the Film Fest 4 opening credits received a One Show Silver Pencil, was awarded ADC Gold and was featured in AIGA’s 365 Annual. The Typophile Film Fest 4 was shown at ATypI St Petersburg last year. The film fest is in its 6th year and has shown in myriad cities worldwide: Minneapolis, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Seattle, Vancouver. Each time we’ve presented to a filled-to-capacity venues.
