Rehoboth Beach Film Society Seeks Art Submissions for 2016 Film Festival
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is seeking original art submissions to be adapted for the 2016 Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival’s artwork. The selected submission will become the theme for designing the Film Festival’s poster, program, t-shirt, and other promotional materials. Submissions must be new, original, and created with film and coastal Delaware in mind.
The selected artist will receive tremendous visibility by having his/her work featured in numerous marketing applications. Several thousand Festival programs will be printed with the chosen artwork on the cover and an interior page devoted to a biography and photo of the selected artist. The program will also be posted on the Film Society’s website. In addition, numerous copies of the Festival poster, featuring the artwork, will be displayed in businesses throughout Sussex County. The artwork will also be posted on the Film Society’s website with a link to the selected artist’s website.
The selected artwork will be auctioned at the Festival in November 2016 with proceeds to benefit the Rehoboth Beach Film Society.
Artwork from Faith Lord, Batenga Obuseh, Nina Stamus, Damon Pla, Laura Ambler, Claudia Ratner, and Steve Drum was selected for previous Festivals.
Artists interested in making a submission can visit the Film Society Website for criteria — http://www.rehobothfilm.com/festival_artwork_guidelines.html — or call the Film Society office, (302) 645-9095. Please note dimension requirements this year. The deadline for submissions is 4:45 pm on March 11, 2016.
