Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which celebrated its 50th birthday last year) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives.

Special guests Brian Maloney of The Type Club of Toronto and Patrick Griffin of Canada Type, representing The Society of Typographic Aficionados and Indie Fonts, will tell us everything we need to know about type, typography, and TypeCon 2008. Raffle, silent auction and plenty of swag!

Join us for the Hamilton premiere at The Staircase, 27 Dundurn St. N. on Thursday, May 22nd. Screenings at 7pm and 9pm. $7 admission. Advance tickets available from Mixed Media, 174 James St. N. 905.529.2323
