Venice Film Fest 2015: Official Poster

July 6, 2015–Venice Film Fest has unveiled the poster for its 72nd edition which pays tribute to actress Nastassia Kinski.  In the background, ther is image of Jean Pierre Leaud’s final frame of Francois Truffaut’s first film, the 1959 “The Four Hundred Blows.”

Nastassja Kinski is meant to encapsulate indie cinema in the 1980s. “The film might be ‘Paris, Texas’ by Wim Wenders,” the fest said in a statement.

In the background is a tiny portrait of Leaud, who was the star of last year’s Venice poster. Recent Venice posters are all by Italian graphic designer and director Simone Massi, also author of the fest’s signature opening visuals, shown before each screening.

The Venice fest will run September 2-12 2015.

The lineup will be announced July 29.
