It’s back – the Tacoma Film Festival poster competition

For the fourth year, The Grand Cinema is holding its Tacoma Film Festival: one week of arthouse, indie, foreign and (especially) Northwest-made film. And once again, local artists get the chance to design the poster, which will be displayed all over the city. Last year’s entries ranged from an Earth goddess with a camera to a black-and-white of the SR509 bridge to a Terry Gilliam-esque Tacoma in the sky.

You can see the full list at www.thenewstribune.com/944/story/442829.html

So here’s the deal for this year’s competition. Deadline is July 20. All entries will be displayed at The Grand, and will receive four movie passes. The winner will receive $350, two festival passes, a joint member to The Grand, and a lot of fame and glory.

The design needs to include this information:

2009 Tacoma Film Festival

October 1-8, 2009


Plus space at the bottom for at least 10 sponsor logos

Please send entries via an electronic format (pdf, jpeg, etc.) to rachel@grandcinema.com that can be reproduced into 11×17 posters. Or you can mail a finished 11×17 printed poster via mail (or drop it off) at 606 S. Fawcett St., Tacoma.

For more information contact Rachel Marecle, Community Development Director at 253-572-6062.

PLUS: There’s still time to get in an actual film entry. Deadline is June 30. See www.grandcinema.com/page.php?id=43 for details.
