Cannes Film Festival Posters 2014

15 Apr


Festival de Cannes has released two versions of this year’s poster. A stylish image of Marcello Mastroianni from Federico Fellini’s “8½’ which screened in Cannes in 1963.

The poster is the work of Hervé Chigioni and his graphic designer Gilles Frappier.

On being shown the posters for the 67th Festival de Cannes, Chiara Mastroianni, Marcello’s daughter, said: “I am very proud and touched that Cannes has chosen to pay tribute to my father with this poster. I find it very beautiful and modern, with a sweet irony and a classy sense of detachment. It’s really him through and through!”

Cannes picks Marilyn Monroe as its 65th anniversary poster girl

29 Feb

The 65th Cannes Film Festival has selected a photo of Marilyn Monroe, taken by Otto L. Bettmann, as the poster for the 2012 festival.

“Fifty years after her death, Marilyn is still a major figure in world cinema, an eternal icon, whose grace, mystery and power of seduction remain resolutely contemporary,” the festival explained in a statement issued with the poster. “The Festival poster captures Marilyn by surprise in an intimate moment where myth meets reality — a moving tribute to the anniversary of her passing, which coincides with the Festival anniversary. She enchants us with this promising gesture: a seductively blown kiss. The Festival is a temple of glamour and Marilyn is its perfect incarnation. Their coming together symbolizes the ideal of simplicity and elegance.”

The Italian filmmaker and 2001 Palme d’Or winner, Nanni Moretti, heads the jury at this year’s festival.

The 2012 Cannes Film Festival will take place 16 – 27 May, its closing night coinciding with the Monaco Grand Prix.
