59° Festival del film Locarno

Feature film posters have exploited the faces of actresses and actors since the very beginning of the industry, stealing expressions and drama to announce titles, venues and times of shows.

Jannuzzi Smith have extrapolated stills from films shown or to be shown at the Film Festival Locarno, cropping and combining them to tell in posters the emotions and stories typical of cinema. The posters reinterpret the Leopard the historical award of the Festival and the familiar yellow and black brush marks making the posters both unique and unmistakably Locarno. Over 30 images have been created and displayed across murals, posters and covers. Together they are the face of the 59th Locarno International Film Festival.
