Official Poster

The official poster of the 20th Seoul International Women's Film Festival shows the originality of the festival through the balance of complex composition and diverse colors. The number 20 on the front is a tribute to all accomplishments made by female cineastes and women's films. The purple tone is a metaphor of SIWFF who believes that femininity has both tough and soft sides. The abstract pattern was illustrated with oriental sensibility to express Seoul where the festival is held. The poster is the fourth collaboration between YANG Hae-gue, a world-renowned installation artist and SEO Hee-sun, a graphic designer, who have presented their works since the 17th SIWFF. Looking back the past 20 years to look ahead the future, the poster reconfirms the vision of the 20th SIWFF who has become one of the world's renowned women's film festivals.
