How to target the eye – Film and design competition

This is the first European summit specially focusing on film visual communication, aiming to discuss the state of the art of film graphics, in the real world, the digisphere and in between. The event will take place online, accessible upon registration, on the 18th and 19th June 2021.

Leading designers from all over the world are invited to talk about their work and discuss the role of film design in the 21st century. Different panels and working groups will be announced. The programme also contemplates a special tribute to the memory of Hans Hillmann’s groundbreaking film design work for Neue Kirchner Filmkunst. This summit is a collaboration between the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin and the Next Wave Program.

The film design competition is a central part of our program. After a thorough selection of entries by the DFFB students final works, the summit committee selected the graduation film ALTRI CANNIBALI, by Francesco Sossai (2020, 95 min), as the working object of this call for designers. We are now calling for entries, inviting all students, professionals, independent or employees, working for the public or private sector, regardless of their age or nationality to participate.

We are looking for 1 innovative poster, as well as additional visual elements. The deadline for submission is the 31st May 2021.
