The official Tacoma Film Festival poster design for 2012 has been announced, and the winner is graphic artist Cameron Taylor of Hundred, WV. Each year, the Grand Cinema’s poster contest sets the tone and provides (a trailer of sorts?), for one of Tacoma’s fave cultural events. The 2012 Tacoma Film Festival opens Thursday, October 4, and runs through Thursday, October 11, with screenings at the Grand Cinema, Tacoma Art Museum, Museum of Glass, Blue Mouse Theater and the University of Washington-Tacoma. The official Tacoma Film Festival program will be available on Thursday, Sept. 13. For more information visit www.TacomaFilmFestival.com.
“It is never an easy task choosing from over 70 submissions of amazing graphic design work, but it has to be done each and every year for the Tacoma Film Festival,” said Philip Cowan, Grand Cinema Executive Director. “The poster contest is just as much a tradition as the festival itself. Entries were received from many local artists along with some worldwide entries this year (Jamaica, India and France). The talent selection was incredible.”
