The works at Cannes is not confined to big industry or big celebrities, since the film festival started in 1946; its posters have given an indubitable treasure trove of aesthetic impact. Their specialty is bringing the cutting edge of art to the present time period in their posters. The ever vibrant glamor of Cannes festivals is clearly evident in their posters.
The disclosing of the official Cannes Film Festival poster has been equally interesting as the selections. The Cannes festival poster has been always attracted by the people all the while. The striking 2011 poster featuring an elegant 1970 photo of actress Fay Dunaway set against delicate text seemed to renew interest in the art form.
In honor of the first Cannes Film Festival, which took place today back in 1946, we’ve compiled a visual history of the Cannes poster. From surreal illustrations, to memorable film stills, and the original artworks of beloved directors, these posters (and accompanying facts) remind us why the annual celebration on Riviera is still the most glamorous, essential, and exciting film festival around.
