This is the 1939 Cannes Film Festival vintage French poster, which is from the year of the planned Cannes Film Festival debut. The film festival was cancelled that year because of the start of World War II.
The Cannes Film Festival hasn't just produced six decades of fabulous films, but each year it has also created a unique and artistic representation of the world's most glamorous film festival. The Cannes Film Festival poster has become an iconic symbol of the history of this French Riviera city and its homage to cinema. Here is a gallery of vintage Cannes Film Festival posters.
