Palace Cinemas British Film Festival

The Background

Palace Cinemas operates 20 cinema venues across the country offering a mix of mixture of foreign language, mainstream, independent and art house films. It also operates as distribution and film production company, presenting a wide variety of specially curated film festivals each year.

The Project

Having worked with Palace Cinemas on past film festivals, Yoke were asked to create the identity for the Emirates British Film Festival. Drawing inspiration from the festival’s retro themed programming, the concept for the design drew inspiration from early examples of British graphic design and was rolled out across all marketing and advertising material.

The Results

Says Genevieve Kelly, ex National Festivals Manager, Palace Cinemas “We’ve worked with Yoke on a number of our film festivals over the years and they have always been up for the challenge. Our campaigns need great creative and strong design work in order to create cut-through in the market and resonate with specific audiences. Such is the nature of events, we also need an agency that is attentive, reliable and able to deliver quality on tight turn arounds, Yoke have got both sides covered.”
