(…) In such a twisted media landscape questions on the state of independent media – the situation of non-profit news sites, the meaning of journalism in our age, where anyone can be a journalist, and how we determine what’s real or what’s fake – have become rather important form the perspective of society. This publication, and the ‘Media of the Fourth Estate’ section of the festival aim to provide a deeper look into these topics.
Several texts are included in this eight-page pamphlet, covering the topics in Hungarian and English. Pieces are written by different authors from the magazine staff as well as guest writers. It includes titles like “Detectives of Post Truth” and “Corruption Kills”. It also showcases the 11 organized sections with a detailed list of the selected films the festival will screen.
For the typography, designer Aron Lodi used solely Ambiant Sans in different sizes and colours. For running text, the font is left untouched, but for titles, it is heavily manipulated by showing only the outlines. As a result, the design looks harsh but interesting, while simultaneously challenging the build of the typeface.
Texts by Hanna Eichner, Dóra Bartal, Etelka Tamás-Balha, Endre Cserna, Márk Tremmel.
