Jumping Ahead a Little …. Cannes 2015

Yeah of course I have a few more French film write-ups, my fully fleshed out TCM festival recap (check out my quick synopsis here) and my Tribeca preview due in the coming days, but let’s pause a moment and look ahead to May for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, namely the poster for this year’s celebration of film on the French Riviera.

In recent years, I have really taken an interest in the artwork the festival organizers use to promote it. My personal fave was the Marilyn Monroe poster (Canned 65).

Well it is that time of year again, and here is the poster featuring and honoring legendary actress Ingrid Bergman –

Cannes 2013 Poster: Another Lovely!

SIGNATURE 10cm 2013.indd

The marketing folks at the Cannes Film Festival are really trying to make me go broke. Last year, it was the lovely Marilyn Monroe poster (which I promptly purchased). For the 66th annual event, we have another part of Hollywood Royalty – this time in the form of my favorite cinematic lovebirds, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. Check out the poster below:
