Images inspired by 'L'avventura'

The 2009 Cannes Film Festival has unveiled its official poster.

The poster for the Cannes Film Fest’s 62nd edition was inspired by Michelangelo Antonioni’s “L’avventura,” which won the fest’s jury prize in 1960. Created by Annick Durban, the image of a mysterious female is meant to evoke a window opening on the magic of cinema. Durban is also designing the look for fest publications as well as decor inside the Palais.

The event also launched a redesigned website in anticipation of Thursday’s program announcement.
