By NewsDesk • Published on March 1, 2012

On its 65th anniversary, the Festival de Cannes pays tribute to Marilyn Monroe, by selecting her as the icon of the 2012 Festival.

‘Fifty years after her death, Marilyn is still a major figure in world cinema, an eternal icon, whose grace, mystery and power of seduction remain resolutely contemporary,’ mentions an official press release from the festival.

The Festival poster captures Marilyn by surprise in an intimate moment where myth meets reality – a moving tribute to the anniversary of her passing, which coincides with the Festival anniversary.

The 65th edition of Cannes Film Festival will be held from May 16-27, 2012.
