In 2020 our montage was simplified and made cleaner by using film stills that were cropped and decolourised. Additional pops of colour were added on top to tie the scenes together.
In 2019 we brought in illustrator and animator Brogan to join the team. As well as the flat illustrated montage poster seen here, she also created individual images of all three characters that were printed as postcards for distribution around the city.
Our 2018 poster continues with the montage theme but adds circles and bubbles to create a sense of dynamic movement underneath a green filter.
Expanding on the montage approach, this time we took one large character image from one our films and added geometric images within the shape, while also adding more of our classic NFF green.
In 2016 we moved to a montage approach to our posters, taking certain stills and character images from our officially selected films and blending them to create a single image for our poster.
Our third (and final) poster design competition was won by Georgia Howell – her poster cleverly utilised coloured film strips to represent Norwich Market.
In 2014 we once again held a nationwide competition to find a designer who would be able to create our new poster. This design, by Sam Cox, was voted as the overall winner by members of the public.
In 2013 we opened up a nationwide competition to designers allowing them to design our official poster. With dozens of entries and hundreds of votes, the winning design was created by Aman Sagoo.
This poster features an illustrated still from the short film Sunny Boy, by Jane Gull, which went on to win Best Short Film.
Ready, Set, Action!
