6 countries to display posters at Cuban film festival

Havana, Nov 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuba will be leading with eight cinematographic posters of a never-forgotten style during the Havana film festival which will have 17 posters on display from a total of six participating countries, a report said.

The exhibition-cum-festival, to be held Dec 3-13, will show these works and also attract the audience to the movie theatres.

Venezuela with three posters, Brazil and Argentina with two each and the Dominican Republic and Colombia with one each will follow Cuba.

Cuba’s participation with the maximum number of works can be explained by its graphic tradition that has been related to its film production since the Cinematographic Art and Industry Institute was established in the ’60s, the report said Friday.

A look at the list of participants shows the increasing number of women in designing such posters as well as in directing and producing the audio-visual works.
