The cut and editing concepts play the lead part in the image of the 65th edition of San Sebastian Festival

boletin_786_1.jpg

 

The author of the poster is the graphic design studio from San Sebastian Husmee


The winner of the New Directors section is Primer vuelo (First Flight), featuring a “brave” plane as it searches for “a new direction”, designed by Angel Aldarondo, who also created the winning proposal of Horizontes Latinos, Muros (Walls), where an artist paints his “wish for freedom”. The designer Maite Rosende reflects on glass in her creation for Pearls, while Sara Zamarro returns to the metaphor of the flight in the Zabaltegi-Tabakalera section, although this time the destination is rather more “unpredictable”. Lastly, the TGA studio turns to austerity to combine the concepts of gastronomy and film in the image of Culinary Zinema.


The poster by Husmee was selected from among the eight submissions by prestigious studios and designers invited to produce the Festival image. The press conference included presentation of the winning images of the poster competition called by the Festival for the New Directors, Horizontes Latinos, Pearls, Zabaltegi-Tabakalera and Culinary Zinema sections. The jury, made up of the designer Jorge Primo, author of the image of the 64th edition, Miren Arzalluz, Director of the Etxepare Institute, and Lur Olaizola, Coordinator of the Tabakalara Cinema and Audiovisual Programme, together with two members of the Film Festival Management Comittee, chose in each category, from twenty submissions: ten selected by the 61,592 votes cast by the general public and ten chosen by the Festival team from among the 1,620 submissions received.This morning, for the first time, the central patio of Tabakalera, the International Centre for Contemporary Culture, became the setting for presentation of the image of the 65th San Sebastian Festival, to run from September 22-30. The graphic design studio from San Sebastian Husmee, which turns 10 this year and has recently opened a branch in London, designed the proposal selected for the Official Selection. Their poster is composed of a grid of 24 stills telling the story of the number 65. The poster plays with the concepts of cut and editing and suggests the idea of rhythm and movement in all of its formats.

Also presented were the posters of the 65th edition retrospective, dedicated to the North American director who settled in the UK, Joseph Losey, designed by Eurosíntesis together with the Festival, and of Savage Cinema, created, like last year, by Maurix with a wink to the natural parks postcards of the 50s and 60s. 

At the press conference, the Festival Director, José Luis Rebordinos, forwarded a number of keys to the edition, where the discovery of new talents will yet again form one of its axes, while recalling the setting in motion of the new industry activity, Glocal in Progress, for European productions in non-hegemonic languages.

OFFICIAL SELECTION

img_25782.jpg

OFFICIAL SELECTION: FOTOGRAMAS (FRAMES)

Author: HUSMEE STUDIO GRAPHIQUE!

BIOGRAPHY

Specialising in corporate identity and editorial design, the basis of their work is form, colour and typography. The studio was created in 2007 by Alain Villastrigo and Ernesto Arnáez as a vehicle for their interests in the field of graphic design. Parallel to its everyday activity the studio is involved in a variety of actions including the cultural magazine of the same name, events, interventions, exhibitions, etc. 

DESCRIPTION

The poster is divided into a grid generating 24 ‘frames’ telling a story starring the number 65, with different cuts and frames that change as the graphics unfold. The compositions are not chronological, but play with the cut and editing concept. Using this element enables them to generate rhythm and different compositions for all of the formats used.

DESCRIPTION

They say nothing’s true or a lie, nothing’s beautiful or ugly, it all depends through which glass you look at it. Pearls is the section for the best movies of the year. Said ‘pearls’ are the glass Zinemaldia places before each spectator so that they can enjoy the full beauty of the seventh art with their own eyes.

Culinary Zinema: Cz

Author: TGA

BIOGRAPHY

San Sebastian design studio. “We like to be functional. We propose graphic, interactive and interior design solutions that are useful, simple, lasting and efficiently meet our clients’ needs. Being a small studio allows us greater involvement, flexibility, proximity and direct responsibility throughout the creative and productive process”.

DESCRIPTION

Austere in its composition, types and colours, the poster contains iconographic elements coming from the world of gastronomy but which, given their formal simplicity, also refer to elements of the film world. This design, visually simple and minimalist, makes for easy reading and fast and direct understanding of the message.
