SLASH 2022 SUJET AND TRAILER The Apocalypse is near... The SLASH Film Festival is too!

SLASH 2022 goes green!

We are so proud to be able to present you this year’s festival artwork by the Viennese advertising agency HYPHE in which nature seeks revenge against its punisher, i.e., us: When the ground starts rumbling, global temperatures spike to unbearable highs, and our failures are reflected in the surfaces of ever-rising oceans, we are facing forces for which we are no match. For their breathtaking design, Elias Fleischer, Franz Mühringer, and Michael Winiecki took inspiration from movies like THE HOST, GODZILLA, ALIEN, THE THING, and INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, the gaming series HALF-LIFE as well as the all-round prophetic writings of H. P. Lovecraft.
Enjoy! 👽

And we are at least as proud of this year’s festival trailer, which was spawned by a collaboration between HYPHE and Fleischwolf Kollektiv and ties in thematically with the artwork: In green hues and underwater aesthetics, director Michael Winiecki and art director Elias Fleischer unsettle us with apocalyptic images that are amplified by erratic scribble animations and whirring rock sounds (Wolf&Antelope). Watch the disquieting feast for eyes and ears here! 💚
