Actress Juliette Binoche is featured on the official poster of San Sebastian Festival’s 70th edition, to run from September 16-24, 2022. Winner of an Academy Award for her work in The English Patient (Anthony Minghella, 1996), the French actor will also receive one of this year’s Donostia Awards in recognition of an extensive career which has seen her play almost 75 characters, from power-wielding heroines to fragile beings with historical figures, drama roles and comedy parts along the way.
The award ceremony will be accompanied by the Donostia Award Screening of Both Sides of the Blade (Avec amour et acharnement) (2022), the movie for which Claire Denis won the Silver Bear for Best Director at the last Berlin Festival with a cast featuring Vincent Lindon, Grégoire Colin and Binoche herself.
Dimensión in San Sebastian, commissioned to create this year’s posters, has taken a portrait of Juliette Binoche by photographer Brigitte Lacombe to create the official 70th edition poster.
