The Typophile Film Festival

The traveling type, or why Helvetica vacations in Portland.

We love typography. We love indie film festivals. So we’re head-over-heels with the fifth annual Typophile Film Fest, which opens in Portland tomorrow and will be traveling to select cities later this year.

With a curated selection of typographic short films from Europe, North and South America and Asia, the festival spans the full spectrum of subject and style — from dynamic typographic animation to short stories to mockumentaries to interviews.

So if you’re in the Portland area tomorrow, get yourself a ticket. If elsewhere, keep an eye out for tour dates.

Meanwhile, tease your typographic palate with the delightful opening credits from years past.

Thanks, Kirstin.
