THE WORLD'S BEST FILM FESTIVAL POSTERS 2021

By José Alberto Hermosillo

As the world attempts to move back to “normal” emerging from an everlasting pandemic – film festivals welcome enthusiastic moviegoers by having online, in-person, or hybrid screenings. The yearly celebrations communicate ideas, dates, locations, and relevant information through flashy, iconic, and commemorative posters – just as the upcoming attractions announced a countless number of events throughout the ages.

This year, the selected graphics reflect the uncertainties of our time and denote a deep sense of introspection with ethereal imagery. The blueprints are meaningful, colorful, and abstract – nevertheless, a ray of hope and faith stands for a better and brighter future.

True to their passion, artists, authors, and designers ignited their creativity to the maximum by sketching a complex, sophisticated, and polished design with transcendental ramifications.

Over the year, Festival in LA curates every piece based on concept, originality, and supporting components – conjoined to the festival’s theme and harmonious style. The number of colors, type of fonts, and amount of information are essential factors to evaluate and classify each piece.

The chosen works inform, reflect, and help the public to admire the cultural beauty of every film festival.  These magnificent posters are a feast to the eyes and gratification for the spirit in all senses. The final lineup is a set of marvelous gems.

The top prize goes to “The Light of Malaga/ La luz de Malaga” from the Malaga Film Festival. The visual experience is a creation of Venezuelan-born artist Ramiro Guevara. His original concept is colorful, impressive, and innovative. His approach to the origins of light and how it continuously expands with concentric white lines “to infinity and beyond” is extraordinary. Mr. Guevara’s work is superb and aspires to perfection. 

The concepts of “Inclusion and diversity” are our mantra. However, some of the world’s most prestigious festivals are absent from the top selection, Cannes, Toronto, London, Sundance, New York, Telluride, Santa Barbara, Lima, Rio, Miami, and Guanajuato. None of those works approached the mastery evident in previous years.

Please, sit back, relax and enjoy our complimentary cultural trip in graphic design to the film festivals around the world.
