New year, new visuals

This year it’s all about Greece. That’s what inspired Maria Fernanda Sánchez creating the design for this years poetryfilmtage festival.
To print this version of our poster we used a technique called risograph printing, a technique that has been developed in Japan and used since the 80s.
This amazing opportunity was given to us by the Risographie Atelier vibora_riso in Manizales, Colombia. What do you think about the new visuals?

SAVE THE DATE: The festival will be taking place from May 20th – 22nd in. The online library will be online for one more week after this.

Thank you!
