Celebrating literary adaptation with Bridport Arts Centre
As Bridport Art Centre’s official creative partner, CuCo have worked continuously with the organisation over the last five years and are incredibly proud to be responsible for their creative re-brand as well as their ongoing marketing literature which includes seasonal programmes, posters, brochures and much more.
Our most recent work for Bridport Arts includes the production of a 20pp programme for their annual From Page To Screen Film Festival.
The unique Film Festival is hosted by Bridport Arts Centre in association with The Electric Palace, and is intended to investigate and celebrate the art of literary adaptation of famous books into on-screen films. The idea of the festival is to ‘inspire people of all ages to read more, watch more films, write and make films,’ as well as to ‘build the stature and scope of the film festival to bring recognition to Bridport and the South West as a cultural hub in film and literature.’ The curator of the festival Nick Marston says, “It’s both wonderful and important that Bridport celebrates the art of literary adaption for film and I am immensely excited to be curating the festival.”
CuCo’s design team were excited to get involved in producing a comprehensive programme for the festival to promote the exciting local event and contribute to the development of a more competitive UK film industry. The programme features an in-depth overview of the event as well as information regarding guest speakers, the films themselves and of course a timetable of screenings.
The organisation wanted the programme to portray a look that was truly distinctive to the festival itself, and therefore the graphical elements of the programme differ slightly to the usual brand look of Bridport Arts Centre. Tie ins to the original branding can be seen throughout the colour palette, typography and the creative layout, however the programme contains differing rustic elements that are not common to the usual organisation’s literature.
Some of the notable names you can expect to see at the festival include Moonlight, which recently won Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role AND Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars, Lady McBeth, Lion, Hidden Figures, Swallows and Amazons and The Incredible Journey; amongst many more.
The Film Festival will take place from Wednesday the 19th – Sunday the 23rd April 2017. Want to find out more or make a booking? Head to www.frompagetoscreen.org.uk.
