Cannes Film Festival reveals 74th edition poster

Cannes Film Festival reveals 74th edition poster

The Cannes Film Festival revealed its official poster for the 74th edition, putting jury president Spike Lee front and center. Lee re-upped this year after having been due to preside over the jury for the festival that was canceled in 2020. Cannes runs from July 6-17 on the French Riviera.

Cannes’ posters annually are tributes to artists and the 7th art in general, often becoming collectibles, thedeadline.com.

The festival (or rather the “People’s Republic of the World of Cinéma” as Cannes billed itself today) said it dedicated the affiche to Lee “for that curious look he is going to put on the work of his fellow filmmakers who bring us news of the World — of theirs and surely a little bit of ours too… For this personal view that he has shared with us since his very first feature.”

The team also cited its “immense impatience to finally find ourselves again in the Cannes setting: The seaside, the palm trees and the silver screen, just like a blank page, that will welcome the films of the Official Selection.”
