Film Society seeks art submissions for 2013 film festivalDeadline for submissions March 22
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is seeking original art submissions to be adapted for the 2013 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 or her work featured in numerous marketing applications. Eight 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. More than 1,000 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 2013 with proceeds to benefit the Rehoboth Beach Film Society.
Artwork from the following artists was selected for previous festivals: Laura Ambler in 2012, Damon Pla in 2011, Nina Stamus in 2010, Batenga Obuseh in 2009 and Faith Lord in 2008.
Artists interested in making a submission can go to rehobothfilm.com/festival_artwork_guidelines.html or call the film society office, 302-645-9095, to obtain criteria. Note the dimension requirements this year. The deadline for submissions is 4:45 p.m., Friday, March 22.
