- Artist Marta Pina will be in charge of creating the poster for this year
- The festival will be hosted from the 19th to the 27th of June
The Valencia International Festival – Cinema Jove, organized by the Institut Valencià de Cultura, returns to its city in June with the best of the international cinema created by young people. Cinema Jove is one of the oldest valencian festivals; this year will host its 35th edition. The dates will be from the 19th to the 27th of June. Artist and illustrator Marta Pina will be the one in charge of the image that will represent us this year.
Since 2017 the image of Cinema Jove has been conducted by different artists and illustrators that year after year have captured the festival’s philosophy. The posters have been created by artists such as Patricia Bolinches (2017), Daniel Rueda and Anna Devís (2018) and David de las Heras (2019). This year, the one in charge for the job is Marta Pina, designer and illustrator that combines traditional methods along with more current printing systems, being collage one of her marks of identity.
The works of Marta Pina have been seen in the posters of various festivals like MuVIM’s Bing Bang Dones, Las Naves’ Christmas Design Festival or in magazines such as La Leche, Bostezo or DXI Magazine.
Marta Pina creates unique pieces that narrate visually, using recovered film frames, all that Cinema Jove represents: an ecclectic and young festival, full of debuts and oriented to exploration.
Pina admits being a recurrent assistant of the festival, being Cinema Jove one of her first cultural experiences when installing in Valencia in her student years. That gives her a sort of “audience approach” that will be enriching to her contribution. Her work orientation has added her a wide range of possibilities when it comes to playing with pictures, considering that we’re not dealing only with graphic images, but also the with the importance of movement within the static in order to create different formats, from urban posters to work for social networks. All of which is clearily in contact with a cinematic discourse.
