2013 Cannes Film Festival

Newman and Woodward Don 2013 Cannes Film Festival Poster

The fest runs from May 15-26

The poster for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival has been released and it features Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, photographed during the shooting of the aptly named A New Kind of Love, by Melville Shavelson (1963). The press release accompanying the poster said the Festival was taking the chance to pay tribute to the memory of Newman, who passed away in 2008, and to mark its undying admiration for Joanne Woodward, his wife and most favored co-star.

The Festival runs from May 15-26 and I will be there, covering every inch of it through the morning of the 25th as I just booked my flight and lodging accomodations earlier this week, thanks in large part to your contributions. I can't wait to hit the ground running for my fourth year in a row.

Here's the poster followed by some additional information on the image.

The photograph from the shoot was isolated, remastered and redesigned by the Bronx agency, who added a kinetic element, toying with the impression of movement and depth in order to enhance the cinematographic effect.

The poster evokes a luminous and tender image of the modern couple, intertwined in perfect balance at the heart of the dizzying whirlwind that is love. The vision of these two lovers caught in a vertiginous embrace, oblivious of the world around them, invites us to experience cinema with all the passion of an everlasting desire.

    True movie royalty and a tribute to two illustrious careers. The picture is from the ads for their 1963 co-starrer "A New Kind of Love."
