The Smalls Film Festival 2017


Design and art direction for the 2017 festival identity for the annual The Smalls Film Festival.


This year’s theme of the festival was ‘Dimensions of Diversity’; a celebration of diversity in general and cinema as a force where linguistic and cultural boundaries are broken down due to universal themes in film narratives and storytelling, such as love, brotherhood, jealousy etc.


Instead of focusing on race or nationality, I got the idea of displaying diversity through eye colour as eye colour crosses countries and races ; thus, both showing diversity but at the same time also unity. Placing the eyeball in the mouth was a way both to communicate the act of witnessing with storytelling at once.
