The Los Angeles Film Festival (June 11-19) has unveiled a new poster by contemporary artist Ed Ruscha to commemorate the fest's 20th edition kicking off this summer. Inspired by the classic art deco 20th Century Fox logo, which Ruscha riffed on in the 1960s, it's a bold and gorgeous work. Check it out in full below.

The festival will include world premieres of American and international features, documentaries and short subject films as well as conversations, master classes, Music in Film Nights at the GRAMMY Museum, Hollywood studio premieres, and other signature events. 

In celebration of the Los Angeles Film Festival’s 20th Anniversary, Festival Director Stephanie Allain and Film Independent at LACMA curator Elvis Mitchell along with artist/scholar Roya Rastegar will program a special section of films and events that celebrates the cultural wealth of Los Angeles.
