The Cannes Festival organizers unveiled Monday, March 29, the poster for the 63rd edition of the leading international film event taking place between May 12 and 23 in the South of France.
The photo shows French actress Juliette Binoche writing "Cannes" with a luminous brush taken by New York-based French photographer Brigitte Lacombe.
Binoche is one of the most internationally renowned French actresses, Academy Award and BAFTA winner for her role in the English Patient by Anthony Minghella in 1996; she also worked on several films with Austrian director Michael Haneke, who received the 2009 Palme d'Or for The White Ribbon.
