Film series flyer templates
We have flyers ready-to-go for 10 films. We recommend you first view the templates in PDF format. But, don’t try to alter the text in these files. There’s another set of files for that below.
The easiest way to customize the flyers for your film events is to use the Microsoft Word templates. These allow you to customize ONLY the information related to your events (time, date, place, sponsor, etc. ) You get 10 templates of 10 films plus a template for the series schedule for the flyer back.
If you want the ability to customize all the text and images in the flyers you will need one of the professional layout softwares -- either QuarkXPress or InDesign. Find a graphic designer in your area who can do the customizations for you.
