The story behind the design: The island's corners through time and space.
As we search through those little corner spots in Taiwan, many iconic items often being overlooked or forgotten, and sometimes even being described as ugly. Such as tinhouse, posters on the telephone pole, plastic chair and pipes, they are all crucial items in every household in Taiwan. To combine all of them, we use an explosive art form to express those items exist in all time and spaces. To use those items as the key vision, we want to put a spotlight on them and create a sense of illusion but at the same time familiarity. And of course, this correlated to this year's film festival program which shines a spotlight on many forgotten people and storytelling from Taiwan.
There are two theme colours in the design, the orange and greyish dark represent sunset and sunrise. But the orange is also a metaphor for the traditional Taiwanese cultures like wedding and banquet. The greyish dark symbolises the mysterious and mischievous atmosphere, like the nightlife and night market. After you watch the films in this year program and come back to look at the poster again, it will certainly give you a different vibe and meaning.
