French designer Hervé Chigioni and collaborator Gilles Frappier based this year’s poster design on a photograph taken from Federico Fellini’s “8½,” which was presented in the Official Selection in 1963.
According to the festival’s press release, “in Marcello Mastroianni and Federico Fellini, we celebrate a cinema that is free and open to the world, acknowledging once again the artistic importance of Italian and European cinema through one of its most stellar figures.”
“The way he looks at us above his black glasses draws us right in to a promise of global cinematographic happiness,” explains the poster’s designer. “The happiness of experiencing the Festival de Cannes together.”
