Despite never having been invited to screen one of his films at the New York Film Festival, John Waters was happy to design the poster for this year's event.
From Film at Lincoln Center:
Of the design, John Waters said, "Since none of my films were ever chosen to be in the New York Film Festival, I was thrilled to be asked to design this year's poster. I always knew I'd get my ass in there somehow! What better way to show my respect and irreverence for this prestigious event than to bring along Globe Poster, Baltimore's famous press that promoted the best rock-and-roll shows all over America for decades? Trashy? Classic? Maybe it's all the same in 2020 when we have to reinvent moviegoing itself."
