Le Festival de Cannes 2014 comme si vous y étiez

The Cannes 2014 poster

The 67th Festival Poster

 

Hervé Chigioni and his graphic designer Gilles Frappier have based the poster design for the 67th Festival de Cannes on a photogram taken from Federico Fellini’s 8½, which was presented in the Official Selection in 1963.

In Marcello Mastroianni and Federico Fellini, we celebrate a cinema that is free and open to the world, acknowledging once again the artistic importance of Italian and European cinema through one of its most stellar figures.

“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.”

In his films, Marcello Mastroianni continued to encapsulate everything that was most innovative, nonconformist and poetic about cinema. On seeing the poster for the first time, Chiara Mastroianni, the actor’s daughter, said simply: “I am very proud and touched that Cannes has chosen to pay tribute to my father with this poster. I find it very beautiful and modern, with a sweet irony and a classy sense of detachment. It’s really him through and through!”

The Festival de Cannes thanks Gaumont, which owns the rights to the film.

The 2014 Festival poster was designed by Lagency / Taste, Paris.

The graphic charter of the 2014 Festival was designed by Bronx, Paris.

On trouve comme première grosse tête d’affiche, la Djette Magda. Femme fatale originaire de Pologne, ayant résidé à Detroit puis à Berlin, cette artiste est l’une des grosses pépites de la scène minimale allemande. Il faut dire que passer son enfance et se frotter dès son plus jeune âge à la scène Techno de Detroit dans les années 90’s, ça forge le caractère et un certain style musical. Les productions de Magda sont toujours empreintes d’un rythme très soutenu, et ce dès les premières minutes de ses productions, un son très métallique et industriel et une mélodie assez simple mais collant parfaitement à l’environnement qu’elle se créé. La minimale selon Magda, c’est la minimale conventionnelle sur laquelle les berlinois se pètent le crâne à longueur de soirée : un rythme qui pénètre et un rythme qui vous habite. Il sera d’autant plus impressionnant d’entendre les basses résonner dans la Cité du Cinéma. Son set ne serait à louper sous aucun pretexte.
