The Los Angeles Film Festival has a celebratory new poster for its 20th anniversary, and it probably looks familiar.

Iconic American artist Ed Ruscha designed the new piece based on one of his earlier renown works. "Large Trademark With Eight Spotlights" is a 1962 painting featuring the name of 20th Century Fox. The feel and form of the piece was borrowed to commemorate the milestone anniversary for the festival. 

“I'm pleased to have designed the poster in support of the 20th LA Film Festival and Film Independent, and I hope the image reaches as many people as possible,” said Ruscha. His work is collected by museums worldwide, including The Getty Center, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.

The festival runs June 11th to June 19th, and passes are available beginning April 22nd. Posters will be sold at a later date.
