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?
Earlier today I had an elaborate daydream in which Timp was actually a volcano and it exploded and we had to escape Provo for the south because the lava floe was rapidly approaching and I-15 NB was melted. Because that’s what normal people daydream about.
