Artwork revealed for the 2019 BFI London Film Festival

Inspired by the NFT sign on our building at BFI Southbank, created in 1957 by Norman Engleback, this year’s LFF creative harks back to some of our classic Festival artwork from the 1960s.

We’re excited to reveal this year’s creative for the 2019 BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express. Delivered in collaboration with creative agency DBLG, the design continues to develop iconography that was inspired by the beautiful NFT sign on our building at BFI Southbank, which was created in 1957 by Norman Engleback, and harks back to some of our classic Festival artwork from the 60s.
