MENA FILM FESTIVAL POSTERS

This imaginary film This Emirati based imaginary film festival highlights five indie films from the Southwest Asian and North African region (SWANA).The posters served as branding for the festival and they feature Arabic typography reminiscent of film from the mid to late 20th century.

A custom Latin typeface was developed from Rakkas to distinguish it from its formal and classic predecessor;  it is called Rakkas Sans.
