Experimental Film Night

Hosted by Austin Film Society

Event Branding & Advertising

Hosted by Austin Film Society, the Experimental Film Night is a bi–weekly showing of experimental films inside the Violet Crown Cinema.

These types of films typically don't bring in as many viewers as other genres in the film industry. To help remedy that, Experimental Film Night was given a unique identity -- sure to have Austinites share in what it means to watch experimental films.

AFS curates and screens hundreds of films annually in their own cinema, as well as other participating locations in Austin. Special events happen regularly throughout the year, helping specific genres or film-makers get more publicity.

A New Event

Because experimental films as a genre encompass such a wide variety of films, going with a specific aesthetic would prove to be tricky.

Utilizing nothing but hand drawn elements in the brand helps show the hands-on, "low budget" aspect that is seen commonly in experimental films.

The hand drawn animation was necessary in order to push the motion aesthetic that is associated with traditional film.

In the end, Experimental Film Night's identity entirely focuses on what makes this genre of film so unique.
