The 41st Telluride Film Festival runs August 29 through September 1 this year and the 2014 poster and artist have just been revealed. The artist, Christian Marclay, works with sculpture, performance, collage and photography – those last two of which really come through in his visual poster for TFF.
“I was very pleased to be invited to design the poster for the Telluride film festival,” said Christian Marclay. “I decided to celebrate celluloid at a time when the old analog medium is being replaced by digital technology. I have always been interested in outmoded formats such as vinyl records, cassette tapes, or rotary telephones. I also wanted to show how cinema is an art of collage – fragments are collected and assembled to tell a story. The filmstrip with its sprocket holes and optical sound track is instantly recognized as the universal symbol for film. I wonder what will replace it?”
