Call For Applications For Design Contract at Open City Documentary Festival

Opportunity Closing Date: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 12:00

Open City Documentary Festival are currently looking for a designer to work with on their 2018 festival.

Open City Documentary Festival creates an open space in London to nurture and champion the art of creative documentary and documentary filmmakers. The festival runs for six days in venues across London and brings together audiences of filmmakers, industry professionals and film lovers.


The brand identity should be recognisable as a film festival but may also reference art and design organisations visually. It should be clean, modern and design-led. We would like to reflect the festival’s ethos of celebrating and promoting the art of cinematic non-fiction and introducing audiences to new and exciting work which would otherwise not be screened. The festival also exhibits documentary work in other mediums including audio documentary and virtual reality. The festival is non-traditional and non-commercial, focusing instead on offering something more refined and curated, intellectual and principled with a leaning towards innovation, bold storytelling and a poetic approach to communication of ideas.
