Open Title Film Festival

Overview

The Open Title Film Festival is an intimate festival in the heart of the big apple. It welcomes experimental and mainstream films, narratives and documentaries, shorts and features, animation and live-action, student productions and the projects of established filmmakers. We strive to make film a participatory experience, with filmmaker Q&As, special events, and discussion panels. The Open Title Film Festival is in talks to screen its films at the Sunshine Cinema in the vibrant East Village of New York City. The name was chosen because "Open Title" connotes that the festival tickets will be free of charge, and that there will be many different kinds of films screened.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The Open Title Film Festival is a free annual community event committed to introducing high quality cinema to audiences who may not otherwise choose to attend a film festival. I want to appeal to people who like movies, but are not the type who already go to a festival because they think it is inaccessible and would have boring, pretentious films. However, this is still a Manhattan audience and will respond to a clean, professional look.

Requirements

We are looking for a logo for the Open Title Film Festival. It will be used on promotional and fundraising materials, the marquee, on t-shirts, and on the website.

It should be simple, bold, and fun. Professional and grown up, without being corporate. Interesting use of color is encouraged.

Please note: Due to financial restraints, please limit your use of color to one or two colors plus black or gray. Putting gradients or many colors on a tshirt is too expensive.

We do not want a cartoon, anything too intricate, gradients, a photograph, clip art, or a person in the logo. It should be able to be scaled up or down and still look good.

As a jumping off point, a simple facade of an old fashioned movie house with the title on the marquee, if done well, could be a possibility. However we are definitely open to creative approaches that have nothing to do with this idea.

If "Open Title Film Fest" works better than "Open Title Film Festival" in the design, that's fine too.

The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK)
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)
