Create a poster for the 34th Chicago Latino Film Festival. The festival features international films from Latin America and Spain.
The idea behind the poster is centered on the power of film. Films can transport the audience thousands of miles away, across mountains, deserts and oceans to create and emotional connection with Latin American stories and characters. The concept centers on the visual metaphor of a filmstrip breaking through these natural and man-made barriers in order to connect cultures.
The result is a design of the moment and timeless. It speaks of film as a transcendental art form, one that knows no barriers, whether they are linguistic, cultural, social or even racial. It was well received by the Chicago Latino community and at national level. It also stands as a symbol of the International Latino Cultural Center’s and the Chicago Latino Film Festival’s core mission.
