It’s a grand celebration of their creativity, innovation, and unwavering dedication to the craft.”
The exhibition meticulously curates a collection of cinema posters, showcasing the diverse styles, techniques, and narratives employed by these visionary artists. By delving into the evolution of cinematic artistry, the showcase aims to evoke nostalgia, ignite curiosity, and rekindle appreciation for the craftsmanship embedded within these posters.
“We are immensely delighted to host this exhibition at PNCA, aligning with our unwavering commitment to promoting and preserving artistic heritage,” stated M. Ayoub Jamali DG-PNCA. “This exhibition will undoubtedly serve as a visual delight for enthusiasts, a platform for educating and inspiring future generations of artists and filmmakers.”
The exhibition was graced by the esteemed presence of Mr. Jamal Shah, Minister of NH&CD, who extended his unwavering support to this noble initiative, amplifying its visibility and contributing significantly to the preservation and promotion of this invaluable art form.
