A young woman, aged 26, making her first film.” The official poster for the 72nd Cannes Film Festival has been revealed, just a few days before the official line-up is revealed as well. The artwork features a young Agnès Varda, only aged 26, making her first feature film.

Check out the official poster below and stick around for the official selection reveal this week, too. Images and info all directly from Cannes. “The poster of the 71st Festival …

Time for a quick look back at movie posters over the last 60 years. We’re all used to seeing Photoshopped movie posters these days, with massive floating heads, explosions and lighting effects, and plenty of other cheesy design tricks. However, movie posters have a glorious history, originating as hand-painted pieces of art that were just as iconic and unforgettable as the movie itself.

She dances, she laughs, she lives! This year marks the 70th year of the annual Cannes Film Festival in the South of France. With less than two months until the film festival kicks off, Cannes has revealed the official poster for this year and it’s another stunner. I’m always excited that they put this much focus on the poster, mostly because it’s a reminder that the festival is coming soon. “Full of joy, freedom and daring, just like Claudia Cardinale dancing on its official poster, the 70th Festival de Cannes (17-28 May), promises a celebration in passionate red and sparkling gold.” The poster is a Photoshopped version of a photo of actress Claudia Cardinale dancing on a roof – we’ve embedded a tweet fading between the real photo and the poster.
