Claudia Cardinale dances on the 70th Cannes Film Festival poster


“Full of joy, freedom and daring, just like Claudia Cardinale dancing on its official poster, the 70th Festival de Cannes (17-28 May), promises a celebration in passionate red and sparkling gold,” said the festival.

They described Cardinale as an “adventurous actress, independent woman and social activist” and said she embodied better than anyone the spirit of Cannes.

Cardinale has starred in may classic films, including Rocco and His Brothers (1960), Girl with a Suitcase (1961), The Leopard (1963), Cartouche (1963), 8½ (1963), Blindfold (1965), Lost Command (1966), The Professionals (1966), The Hell with Heroes (1968), and Once Upon a Time in the West (1968).

“Throughout the 12-days festival, the spirit of openness and welcome will infuse the Croisette – as it does every year – with pictures of a world that dares to look itself in the mirror, to stand proud and to speak out.”

The official selection will be announced on April 13.

“I am honoured and proud to be flying the flag for the 70th Festival de Cannes,” said Claudia Cardinale, “and delighted with this choice of photo. It’s the image I myself have of the Festival, of an event that illuminates everything around. That dance on the rooftops of Rome was back in 1959. No one remembers the photographer’s name… I’ve also forgotten it. But this photo reminds me of my origins, and of a time when I never dreamed of climbing the steps of the world’s most famous cinema hall. Happy anniversary!”

Monica Bellucci will be hosting the ceremonies and Pedro Almodóvar will preside the jury of the 70th edition.
