June 2017

The Chicago International Film Festival is the longest-running competitive film festival in North America. The festival has a rich history of selecting carefully designed posters from top designers as the official image each year.

The Festival has worked with a variety of designers – from Academy Award winner Saul Bass to Broadway graphic designer David Byrd to noted Italian artist Giulio Cittato.

Within recent years, festival organizers launched a competition to the general public to design a poster for the festival. This video served as a call for entries for the contest and was distributed through various social media platforms.
