Helvetica: The Film.


As part of a special week of font tips I'd like to mention an upcoming feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. Titled simply: Helvetica.

Helvetica will begin screening at film festivals worldwide in early 2007, followed by limited cinema screenings and a DVD release. For now you can watch four short QuickTime clips featuring interviews with Wim Crouwel, Neville Brody, Erik Spiekermann and others.

Source: Helvetica celebrates it's 50th birthday in 2007. We know it is odd to be looking forward to a 2-hour movie about typography. You can also check out the book Helvetica: Homage to a Typeface by Lars Muller.
