There have been some really great comments this week, including which Australian film posters you would like to see Heath design, if you were the winner of this weeks amazing giveaway! Perhaps some of today's film festival posters will inspire a few more ideas...? - Jenny x

One thing that Australia has seemingly done well from the beginning is design for festivals, distributors and showcases.

To coincide with this years Melbourne Film Festival, an online retrospective of posters from the past 60 years was launched. There are some extraordinary pieces on display - all of which beautifully reflect their time period. More recently there's been some exquisite work produced by the likes of Boccolatte, Naughtyfish, Mark Gowing, Chris Doyle, Alter, the Rinzens and We Buy Your Kids.

There's an energy in these works. A sense of fun and experimentation that would be great to see more frequently on DVD covers and in cinema lobbies.
