Helvetica screening schedule

Helvetica movie poster

Forget Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter. For me, the big movie event of the year is the release of Helvetica, Gary Hustwit's feature-length documentary about the ubiquitous Helvetica typeface, and how it's helped shape global visual culture. The film premieres next week at the SXSW conference in Austin, and then plays at design-geek friendly venues throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. Visit the Helvetica web site for the full screening schedule.

Here in Los Angeles, the first screening is April 27th at USC. Want to join me?

No, I haven't seen specific screening info for USC either. I guess just keep checking the Helvetica website.
