  • Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Agnes Varda vintage movie posters from her critically acclaimed catalog of feminist cinematic contributions.

    Agnès Varda was on May 30th, 1928. She was a Belgian-born French film director, screenwriter, photographer, and artist. Her work was central to the development of the widely leading French New Wave film movement of the 1950s and 1960s. For this reason, the filmmaker is considered a feminist pioneer. Her documentary style films aim to address feminist issues and realism whilst constructing other social commentaries with a particular exploratory style.

    Agnes Varda's work employed location shooting in an era when the limitations of sound technology made it easier and more common to film indoors, with constructed sets and painted backdrops of landscapes, rather than outdoors, on location. Her use of non-professional actors was also unconventional for the 1950s French cinema.

    In 1977, Varda founded her own production company, Cine-Tamaris, in order to have more control over shooting and editing. In 2013, Varda's first American exhibition in California and was held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Agnes Varda exhibition featured a sculptural installation, several photographs, and short films inspired by time she spent in Los Angeles in the 1960s. The feminist filmmaker was a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 2005 after having previously served as a member of the jury at the Venice Film Festival in 1983. On November 11th, 2017, Varda received an Academy Honorary Award for her contributions to cinema, making her the first female director to receive such an award.
