Northern Lights Film Festival is an international film festival established in the North East of England in 2003.


NOVAK were commissioned to create a bespoke visual identity for the 2008 edition of the festival, to convey the vibrant, diverse and varied film program. The ident was featured before each screening and used throughout social media.


Braking away for the traditional festival ident, NOVAK combined elements from a number of the films being featured along with the festival logo and created an animated visual identity that took the viewer on a whistle stop journey around the world, reflecting the breadth and variety of the films on show, while maintaining the festivals brand identity.
