For this year´s edition, Porto/Post/Doc challenged Circus Network to create the only exhibition for the festival, that will join illustration and design with documentaries. As a response to this invitation, Circus spoke to 12 emerging illustrators and designers about creating unique posters for every film that is taking part in the International Competition of the major documentary movie festival in Porto. The main criteria in the choice of artists was the fusion of illustration and design in their work. The illustrators that were commissioned are active in those areas.
