Poster art for film

The Illustration Biennial asked eleven Dutch illustrators to make a poster for their favorite Golden Calf-winning Dutch movie. The Golden Calves are the most prestigious prizes within the Dutch audiovisual sector.

Good movie posters show an image that touches on the impact of the movie itself. This unique quality and versatility make movie posters a graphic art form of their own. For this project we are working with the Nederlands Film Festival, which is celebrating its 40th year.

We will present all posters and a sketchbook in a special exhibition at the Illustration Biennial. In the run-up, we’ll introduce the participating illustrators online one-by-one. Their production process can be followed via Instagram.
