Cannes 32: Festival International Du Film Cannes 1979



The International Film Festival held annually in Cannes, South of France since 1946 and is perhaps the most famous and glamorous of all film festivals. Its official posters to promote the event are always sought after and extremely well produced and stylish whether a photographic image or designed by a leading artist. This French poster created for the 32e Festival International Du Film Cannes 1979 (1979 Cannes Film Festival) to be held May 10th – May 24th, 1979 features very cool art by Jean-Michel Folon who uses the same little hat-wearing character as seen in the animated “Antenne 2” film and a complex twelve-color background gradient, which he obsessively supervised until it was printed to his satisfaction. In his naive, surrealistic style, he transforms the hat into a movie screen with a ‘third eye’ glowing in the forehead. Originally rolled (as issued) with minimal handling wear this rare example presents very well with beautiful design and depth of colour. Incredibly collectable this fine piece represents original movie memorabilia of the highest order and is considered one of the best and most memorable posters produced for the Cannes Film Festival.
