The look of Cannes

Fest unveils official 2011 poster

A stylized vintage image of Faye Dunaway has been chosen for the official 2011 Cannes Film Festival poster.

The 1970 photo was taken by helmer Jerry Schatzberg, who won the Palme d’Or in 1973 for “Scarecrow.” Dunaway starred in Schatzberg’s debut feature, “Puzzle of a Downfall Child,” which will screen in a restored version at this year’s fest.

“A model of sophistication and timeless elegance, it is an embodiment of the cinematic dream that the Festival de Cannes seeks to maintain,” the festival said in a statement.
