Always a fun update, the Cannes Film Festival has revealed its latest poster. This year’s is a poignant one, but as ever, it’s sprinkled with cinema magic.

The festival’s newest poster pays tribute to the late French filmmaker Agnès Varda who passed away just last month. It captures the director precariously perched up high while filming 1955 film La Pointe Courte, which played at Cannes. It is unclear whether the festival was planning on spotlighting the iconic filmmaker in this way before her death, but either way, it’s a fitting and timely tribute. The artwork behind the poster is impressive as ever: it oozes Riviera.

An accompanying message from the festival press release reads:

“Agnès, in the bright sunlight

All the way up.

As high as she could go.

Perched on the shoulders of an impassive technician.

Clinging to a camera, which seems to absorb her entirely.

A young woman, aged 26, making her first film.

It is August 1954: we are in the Pointe Courte neighbourhood of Sète, in the South of France. In the dazzling summer light, Silvia Monfort and Philippe Noiret explore their fragile love, surrounded by struggling fishermen, bustling women, children at play and roaming cats. Natural settings, lightweight camera, shoestring budget: with La Pointe Courte (presented in Cannes, in a screening on the rue d’Antibes, in 1955), the photographer from Jean Vilar’s Théâtre National Populaire is paving the way for a young cinema, of which she will remain the only female director.

Agnes Varda, French New Wave Film Director, Dies at 90

Agnes Varda, French New Wave Film Director, Dies at 90 Agnès Varda, the pioneering French film director who emerged in the New Wave movement of the 1960s and continued to direct influential work including 2017's Oscar-nominated documentary "Faces Places," has died at age 90. "The director and artist Agnès Varda died at her home overnight on Thursday of complications from cancer," her family said in a statement to Agence France-Presse. "She was surrounded by her family and friends." In 2017, Varda became the first female director to receive an honorary Academy Award — and one year later became the oldest nominee for a competitive Oscar for co-directing the documentary feature "Faces Places" with French street artist JR.

Like a manifesto, this photo from the set sums up everything about Agnès Varda: her passion, aplomb, and mischievousness. Ingredients of a free artist, forming a recipe she never stopped improving. Her 65 years of creativity and experimentation almost match the age of the Festival de Cannes, who celebrates each year visions which reveal, dare and rise higher. And who remains keen to remember.

As she liked to point out, Agnès Varda is not a woman filmmaker: Agnès Varda is a filmmaker. She often attended the Festival de Cannes to present her films : 13 times in the Official Selection. She was also a Jury member in 2005 as well as President of the Caméra d’or Jury in 2013. When she received the Honorary Palme d’or, in 2015, she evoked “resilience and endurance, more than honour”, and dedicated it “to all the brave and inventive filmmakers, those who create original cinema, whether it’s fiction or documentary, who are not in the limelight, but who carry on.”

From filmmakers to major festivals such as Cannes and TIFF, the international film circuit pays tribute to the French New Wave icon. “RIP Agnès Varda , a icon of independent cinema before it even had that name,” Wright added. “ ‘Faces Places’ was an inventive, funny capper on an extraordinary career.

In 1976, Agnès Varda made a profoundly feminist film about the trajectories of two female friends in the context of women's struggle for the legalisation of contraception and abortion. The filmmaker, who presided over the Caméra d’or Jury in 2013 and was awarded a Palme d’honneur for her life's work in

Avant-garde but popular, intimate yet universal, her films have led the way. And so, perched high on this pyramid, surveying the beach at Cannes, young and eternal, Agnès Varda will be the inspirational guiding light of this 72nd edition of the Festival!”

The festival’s lineup is revealed on Thursday.
