  • Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Gus Van Sant vintage movie posters from his critically acclaimed catalog of timeless cinematic performances and creations.

    Gus Green Van Sant Jr. was born on July 24th, 1952. He is an American screenwriter, film director, photographer, painter, author, and musician, who has become highly respected as both an independent and mainstream filmmaker. His films typically deal with themes of marginalized imperfection, in particular, homosexuality and as a result, Van Sant is considered one of the most prominent auteurs of the New Queer Cinema movement.

    Gus Van Sant devoted his early carrier to directing television commercials in the Pacific Northwest. He made his feature-length cinematic directorial debut with Mala Noche in 1985. His second feature Drugstore Cowboy was in 1989 and was highly acclaimed, and earned Van Sant screenwriting the award for Best Director from the National Society of Film Critics and awards from New York Film Critics Circle and Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

    His following film, My Own Private Idaho in 1991, Gus Van Sant similarly praised, as was the black comedy To Die For in 1995, the drama Good Will Hunting in 1997, and the biographical film Milk in 2008; for the latter two, Van Sant was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director and both films received Best Picture nominations.

    In 2003, the famed director's film about the Columbine High School massacre, Elephant, won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. He also received the festival's Best Director Award that same year, making him one of only two filmmakers—the other being Joel Coen—to win both accolades at the festival in the same year. Though most of Van Sant's other films got good reviews, such as Finding Forrester in 2000 and Paranoid Park in 2007, some of his efforts, such as the environmental drama Promised Land in 2012 and the art-house production Last Days in 2005 were not as well received.

    Film/Art Gallery’s collection of original Gus Van Sant movie posters include a Mala Noche French 1 panel (47x63). Our Gus Van Sant poster collection also includes a My Own Private Idaho Italian 2 Foglio (39x55).
