Venice is getting ready for the 73rd Venice International Film Festival 2016. They have made the first official announcement for the Venice Film Festival 2016 with what you can all the ‘teaser’ poster.
The image is being described by the festival as the “moment of expectation” of cinema. Looks and sounds just right for the 73rd Venice Film Festival 2016!
The 73rd Venice Film Festival 2016 poster has been conceived and designed by artist Simone Massi – and this is his fourth consecutive year with the Venice Film Festival. Massi also directed the opening sequence of the Venice Film Festival in 2012 that featured 300 hand-drawn illustrations with quotes from the works of Tarkovsky, Dovzhenko, Fellini, Angelopoulos, Wenders, Olmi and Truffaut. He also won the 2012 David di Donatello for Best Short Film. He is famously considered as one of the last pioneers of stop-motion animation, who works entirely by hand with no computer work. His works have been awarded over 200 times at major festivals around the world.
For the festival from 2012-2015, Massi designed a sequence of four posters, as a part of one continuous story, using elemental designs from Angelopoulos’ Eternity and a Day, Wenders’ Paris, Texas, Fellini’s And the Ship Sails On and Truffaut’s The 400 Blows.
Chaired by Biennale head Paolo Baratta and directed by Alberto Barbera, the 73rd Venice International Film Festival is scheduled to take place on the Lido from August 31 to September 10.
