One year after featuring the late Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni on its official posters and signage, the Cannes Film Festival announced today (Monday) that three-time Oscar winner Ingrid Bergman will be the face of the festival for 2015, the 100th anniversary of her birth (Bergman died on her 67th birthday on August 29, 1982.) In a statement, the Festival described her as “a modern icon, an emancipated woman, an intrepid actress, and a figurehead for the new realism.” The 68th Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to take place from May 13-24.
