The visual identity of the 61st TIFF

61st Thessaloniki International Film Festival || 5 - 15/11/2020  


The visual identity of the 61st TIFF

We have the pleasure to present you the official posters of the 61st Thessaloniki International Film Festival, designed by illustrator Luis Mazón, regular collaborator of The New York Times, The New Yorker and Little White Lies.

The Festival will take place from November 5 – 15, 2020. We are building a hybrid edition with screenings and events in theaters, online and in public spaces. In two weeks, we will be ready to announce more information on this year’s hybrid Festival.

The concept behind the posters

A compass, lots of colours, no sense of direction. We go back to basics, to the stability we lost. We bring back our childhood-self that reminds us of our greatest need for a more carefree time.

We are looking for a new navigator in cinema. The films show spots on the human horizon; they reveal the things that bring us together. They propose new ways to see things, through cinematic moments, and through the ever-changing experience of viewing, while we are in a constant search of direction for tomorrow.
