Rehoboth Beach Film Society Seeks Art Submissions for 2011 Film Festival
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is seeking original art submissions to be adapted for the 2011 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 in mind.
Marketing Coordinator, Cindy Hall states, “Each year the creativity of submissions is amazing. The selected artist receives enormous visibility by having his/her work featured in numerous marketing applications. Thousands of Festival programs will be printed with the chosen artwork on the cover and will include a picture and biography of the selected artist. In addition, 1,500 copies of the Festival poster featuring the artwork will be distributed and a replica will be posted on the Film Society website.”
Artwork from the following artists was selected for previous Festivals: Nina Stamus in 2010, Batenga Obuseh in 2009, and Faith Lord in 2008. The Film Festival poster is displayed in numerous businesses throughout Sussex County and is seen by thousands of people.
The selected artwork will be auctioned at the Festival in November 2011 with proceeds to benefit the Rehoboth Beach Film Society.
