Kukuxumusu designs the poster for the XVI Pamplona Cinema Festival
In 2015 we celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the premiere of the movie Brave Heart and it is for that reason that Kukuxumusu chose the theme of this film for the design of its poster made for the XVI Pamplona Cinema Festival. In total, Kukuxumusu has designed fourteen of the posters for this festival, creating a wide series that ranges from Luis Buñuel to Hitchcock as well as mythical movies such as King Kong or Alice from The Wizard of Oz.
The protagonist of the drawings of all these posters is a large Kukuxumusu-eye which introduces the well-known stories that we all know and which go to make up part of the history of cinema. That eye was the original proposal from Kukuxumusu for the Pamplona Film Festival in 2002 and since then it has become the standard link to the whole series of Kukuxumusu-designed posters for this annual festival.
The Pamplona Film Festival will begin on the 5th of October and over the five following days there will be 115 films and short movies presented in various different sections that go to make up this movie festival such as Educatif, Valor Visual and AcceFest.
