2014 Cannes Film Festival Poster
The 67th annual Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to be held from 14 to 25 May 2014.
The poster design for the 67th Festival de Cannes is based on a photogram taken from Federico Fellini’s 8½, which was presented in the Official Selection in 1963.
The actor in the poster is Marcello Mastroianni.
“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.”
“I am very proud and touched that Cannes has chosen to pay tribute to my father with this poster,” said Chiara Mastroianni, the actor’s daughter.
Marcello Mastroianni, Knight Grand Cross, was an Italian film actor. His prominent films include La Dolce Vita; 8½; La Notte; Divorce, Italian Style; Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow; Marriage Italian-Style; A Special Day; City of Women; Henry IV; Dark Eyes; and Stanno tutti bene. His honours included British Film Academy Awards, Best Actor awards at the Cannes Film Festival and two Golden Globe Awards.
