Transform! Follow Your Heart
Okinawa International Movie Festival welcomes its 11th opening this year.
The festival can be bigger and even more exciting. We created a message that can be a catalyst for the festival itself, to make a dramatic transformation, and to attract even more visitors.

The slogan was designed by an up-and-coming copy writer, Junpei Watanabe, and the illustration is by two art directors: Shumei Takahashi and Yu Orai.

Through the concept of “Follow Your Heart” and through the visual world of the new characters created last year, “New O! Chan”, who pop up all over the place, the team aims to further bring out the powerful presence of Okinawa International Movie Festival.
