Film Fest Gent unveils the festival’s official poster featuring British style icon Twiggy in honour of this year’s British focus.

For the poster image of the 42nd edition, Film Fest Gent chose an iconic visual that nicely links to the programme. And what better choice could there be for an edition focusing on British cinema than Twiggy? Twiggy wasn’t just the first model to have superstar status; she was also the incarnation of the spirit of the Swinging Sixties when London was the bustling centre of everything young, hip, bold and colourful. As a tribute to our poster girl, there will also be a rare screening of Twiggy’s only feature film in which she plays the lead: ‘The Boy Friend’ (1971), a nostalgic and loving tribute by Ken Russell to the heyday of the British and Hollywood musicals.

Thank you De Blauwe Peer for the hard work!
