ROME – The Venice Film Festival on Friday released the official poster for its 70th edition, showing a man waving from a seashore, an image organizers said was inspired by a scene starring Bruno Ganz from Eternity and a Day, the 1998 drama from Greek filmmaker Theodoros Angelopoulos.
The poster, painted by Italian animator Simone Massi, also features a smaller image from last year’s poster, inspired by Federico Fellini’s 1983 film, E la nave va (And the Ship Sails On), one of the Italian maestro’s final films.
The style of the artwork will be familiar to Venice regulars: Massi, who has won a David di Donatello award for best short film, last year created the opening sequence that is shown before each Venice screening. The sequence will be used this year as well.
The Venice Film Festival, the world’s oldest film festival, runs Aug. 28 through Sept. 7.
