The New York Film Festival opens tonight with Polanski’s Carnage and so, as I did last year, I thought I should gather together as many of the international posters for the films in the main selection as I could find. The French Carnage poster takes a rather banal multi-head concept and enlivens it with its striking candy-colored checkerboard treatment. The rest are, inevitably, a mixed bag. I present them below in alphabetical order, by their English title, but the highlights are undoubtedly the superb UK Quad for Miss Bala; the French illustration for This Is Not a Film; the German festival poster for Dreileben (a festival sidebar but I had to include it); the new campaign for Martha Marcy May Marlene (though I did also like the earlier motion poster); the US poster for Melancholia; and the teaser for Shame. From the main slate the only films I could not find posters for were Ruben Östlund’s Play (one of my personal favorites) and Nadav Lapid’s Policeman, so if anyone can help me collect the set please let me know. You can scroll through all the posters below or click on Carnage and flip through the slideshow.
