AIFF Celebrates Eighth Annual Poster Contest Competition
Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF) organizers will be holding a reception at 7 p.m., April 26, at the Arlington Friends of the Drama, to celebrate the eighth annual Poster Contest Competition.
With the founding of AIFF in 2010, the first project to spin-off connecting film with the arts was the poster contest. This year, the offer to participate in the competition went out exclusively to Robert Maloney’s Experimental Illustration class at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. It has been a successful partnership in which junior- and senior-level students have had the opportunity to create a beautiful portfolio piece that could help them in launching their careers.
The reception will bring together the art students with their professor, the contest judges, artists and appreciators of the arts to unveil the chosen poster winner. In addition to the poster contest, the reception is also a celebration of other art forms including poster illustrations, live music, poetry, dance and story-telling. It will also kick off this year’s international film festival, scheduled to be held November 1 to 4.
