The artistic design theme for the upcoming 2017 Sundance Film Festival is “illumination.” Inspired by Pablo Picasso and Gjon Mili’s “light drawings,” the poster image was created through the use of long exposure photography at the Sundance Mountain Resort. The mountain crest forming the upper silhouette is Mt. Timpanogos, an iconic peak of Utah’s natural landscape.

Below you can see all of the official Sundance Film Festival posters from throughout the years, starting at 1985 (back when it was called the U.S. Film Festival). Do you have a favorite?
