Movie posters are not much in evidence around the theaters of Cannes. One striking exception though was this stunning poster for Uszula Antoniak’s Code Blue which had a couple of enormous banners in the market and in one of the pavilions along the beach. Unfortunately, the film itself was one of the least liked films in Cannes, earning a D grade in indieWire’s critics poll.
I have assembled a few of the other standout posters for films in this year’s Un Certain Regard, Le Quinzaine (Director’s Fortnight) and other sections of the festival.
One of my favourite designs of all, is actually a poster for short films: Bear.
Below this is three very simple yet effective posters for Joachim Trier’s Oslo, August 31st, and one for Volcano by the excellently named Rúnar Rúnarsson.
