Last Wednesday the direction of the Festival presented the official poster of the 70th Cannes Film Festival (17-28 May 2017). This official poster with dancing famous Italian actress Claudia Cardinale promises an outstanding event (as usual) in «passionate red and sparkling gold».
Claudia Cardinale is delighted with this choice of photo:
«I am honoured and proud to be flying the flag for the 70th Festival de Cannes. It’s the image I myself have of the Festival, of an event that illuminates everything around. That dance on the rooftops of Rome was back in 1959. No one remembers the photographer’s name… I’ve also forgotten it. But this photo reminds me of my origins, and of a time when I never dreamed of climbing the steps of the world’s most famous cinema hall. Happy anniversary!»
