The challenge was

The Rebirth of French New Wave

That sweet je ne sais quoi

Born in the late 1950s as an art film movement, Nouvelle Vague – or French New Wave – set off a creative revolution covering themes of intellectualism, politics, sex, violence, and sartorial elegance, often surpassing imitation. One remarkable result of the French New Wave movement were the daring and unconventional posters used to market each film.

That’s where you come in: get inspired by the visual identity of films of this vintage era. Think fresh and modern. Dare to create something minimal and anti-commercial, with bursts of color, experimental typography, and collage. Think about a story, song, or poem you love, or reimagine modern day ideals. Be bold, be rebellious, experiment, and mix it up. Consider yourself a new auteur and invent the movie poster of your wildest Nouvelle Vague dreams!
