The sun is staying out longer and the days are getting warmer, which for movie fans means that the Cannes Film Festival is around the corner. We’re already made our list of the 20 Films We Hope To See At The 2015 Cannes Film Festival and soon the announcements, hype and buzz will be escalating into fever pitch. But today things start out softly with release of the festival’s official poster.
Ingrid Bergman is this year’s highlight star —the image above is based on a photograph by David Seymour, and the poster was put together by graphic designer Gilles Frappier. In addition, Frappier also put together an animated promo featuring a new version of Camille Saint-Saëns’ “The Carnival of the Animals” by Patrik Andersson and Andreas Söderström. As festivalgoers know, that song is played along with the Cannes Film Festival logo prior to each screening at the fest.
Check out the full one sheet below, along with the animation. The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 13-24. The official lineup will be unveiled on April 16th.
