Los Angeles Fim 20th Anniversary with Commemorative poster by World Reknown Artist Ed Ruscha

Festival Dates: June 11- June 19, 2014 

 The Los Angeles Film Festival, presented by Film Independent, in conjunction with Presenting Media Sponsor the Los Angeles Times and Host Partner L.A. LIVE, today unveiled the Festival’s 20th Anniversary commemorative poster, designed by iconic American artist Ed Ruscha, based on his 1962 painting “Large Trademark With Eight Spotlights.”

“I’m pleased to have designed the poster in support of the 20th LA Film Festival and Film Independent, and I hope the image reaches as many people as possible,” said Ruscha. Ruscha’s work is collected by museums worldwide, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Musée National Jeu de Paume, The Getty Center, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney.

“We’re honored that Ed Ruscha created the artwork for the 20th anniversary poster,” said Josh Welsh, President of Film Independent. “Ruscha’s body of work represents the creative spirit of Los Angeles that is embodied in the Festival.”

Ignition, an LA-based creative agency, worked with Ruscha on the poster design.
