Join us in the journey to visit the different pieces created from 2008 until this edition and the authors who generated La Cabina posters, visual references in the Film Festival panorama.

An narrative image which offers a certain mysterious cinematographic reminiscence represents the work of  César Sebastián, Valencian cartoonist, illustrator and designer.

9th edition La Cabina (2016) poster – Author: Lawerta

“The idea of the poster was to represent, using the medium-length film imagery, that inside of the phone booth of La Cabina there is something magical that is awesome and difficult to explain. López Vázquez is inside of the phone booth, but instead of being stressed and anxious for not being able to come out, he is actually delighted to be inside of the booth enjoying himself”, comments renown illustrator and designer Lawerta (València, 1983). His work displays unique pieces where typography and pop-style portraits with a distinctive personality merge together.
