While we hungrily await the 2015 Cannes lineup, which will be announced April 16, feast your eyes below on this year’s official poster that pays tribute to Ingrid Bergman.
Using a photo by David Seymour, Hervé Chigioni, who also created for last year’s poster of Marcello Mastroianni, was once again behind this year’s image with graphic designer Gilles Frappier. He also created an animated film alongside the poster featuring a remix of the Festival’s theme by Camille Saint-Saëns, that seductive tune that sweeps you into every screening.
This year we’ll see Stig Björkman’s documentary “Ingrid Bergman, in Her Own Words” on the Croisette as part of the Cannes Classics sidebar. Cannes is also supporting an upcoming Ingrid Bergman tribute organized by her daughter Isabella Rossellini to toast Bergman’s 100th birthday (she was born August 29, 1915). The show will be performed in the five key cities in Ingrid Bergman’s life: Stockholm, Rome, Paris, London and New York and will feature, with Rossellini, Jeremy Irons, Fanny Ardant, Christian De Sica and more.
The 68th Festival de Cannes will take place from May 13-24, 2015.
