Northern Ireland Premiere with Gary Hustwit

We’re delighted to announce the Belfast premiere of Gary Hustwit’s critically acclaimed documentary film Helvetica. Helvetica will only have limited screenings worldwide and we are excited to bring this unique evening to Belfast especially with the director Gary Hustwit present.

Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which is celebrating its 50th birthday this year) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. Helvetica is screening at film festivals, museums, design conferences and cinemas worldwide.

With an introduction by Gary Hustwit, tickets for this event are limited. Sign up now to ensure you don’t miss out on this opportunity. Your £5 admission fee includes free entry into a draw to win three prizes of Helvetica OpenType Licenses (First Prize: Helvetica Bold; Second Prize: Helvetica Roman; Third Prize: Helvetica Light).

We are really excited to have the opportunity to premiere Helvetica in Belfast and hope to see you there. Thank you for your support!
