Experimental Film Society Poster Series

  • Experimental Film Society (EFS) is an independent, not-for-profit entity specialising in avant-garde, independent and no/low budget filmmaking. Its aim is to produce and promote films by its members. EFS unites works by a dozen filmmakers scattered across the globe, whose films are distinguished by an uncompromising, no-budget devotion to personal, experimental cinema. EFS is responsible for rescuing and preserving many of its members' films, which otherwise might have been lost forever.
    This series of works includes a number of promotional posters for feature films directed by EFS filmmakers, mainly Rouzbeh Rashidi, who is the founder of Experimental Film Society in Dublin/Irland. Rashidi's movies are characterized by their bold, deconstructive, and poetic imagery. The posters attempt to express these qualities as well as their highly experimental/personal narrative structure by making use of typographic elements and the interplays of their snapshots. Hence, the posters become the representation of each movie's concept, while maintaining their design language as a part of the series.
