I just want to remind people of this, taken from the brief:
Key concepts to consider in the design:
– The logo is to represent a documentary film festival.
– The films are about global humanitarian and human rights issues. The films that are screened have been submitted from all over the world. The organization’s goal is to be able to screen the films to audiences all over the world.
– For a film to be considered for inclusion in the festival, it must reflect one or more of the eight UN Millennium Development Goals. Entrants to the logo competition should familiarize him/herself with the MDGs whose target date is 2015.
I am no judge but I don't see any of that in the "chosen logo".
