The Smalls Film Festival ’16


The Smalls Films Festival 2016 was a celebration of the change that The Smalls had undergone during the past year. It seemed only natural that the theme of this year’s festival should be ‘Metamorphosis’, also a key-ingredient in filmmaking in the shape of character development.


The main visual of the festival shows the transformation of an undefined round object into a film reel. The circular shape was then applied as a recurring pattern in the printed programme. The idea with the cover of the programme is to communicate the metamorphosis interactively so that when the reader flips from the die-cut cover where you see three multi-coloured circles, to the following page, these circles transform into film reels.
