The Havana exhibition – competition, which 30 edition will be held from the 2nd and until the 12th of December, opens each year a space for the plastic genre, which is linked to the cinema in its condition of first call, of visual hook that is in many occasions enough to make the spectators go to the cinema.
Posters incite, recruit, mobilise and filmmakers go to it, aware of its expressive potentialities.
It is interesting to see among the competing posters the frequency of anonymous designers instead of signing the work. Behind this situation can hide both a known author and a new one.
In Cuba this genre started with strength since the creation of the Instituto Cubano del Arte e Industria Cinematográficos (Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Arts and Indutry), backed by the brilliant signatures of Eduardo Muñoz Bach, Raúl Martínez, Alfredo Rostgaard, Humberto Peña and René Azcuy.
The diseased painter Martinez, made the eyes of several generations of spectators turned to the poster of Lucia (image), a movie of Humberto Solas, which followed the movie in its long world trip.
A jury made by five specialists of the seventh art will select the winning poster and will also select the winners of animation and documentaries. It is a jury with a triple work.
