2016 Poster Design Contest

Mount Ida College Students Vie to Create Poster

for Arlington International Film Festival

(Newton, MA) – February 22, 2016    - Graphic Design students at Mount Ida College have been chosen by the Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF) to be this year’s participants in the Film Festival’s annual Poster Design contest.

The posters, done under the auspices of Mount Ida’s School of Design are to capture the essence of the Film Festival – to promote cultural understanding by exploring diversity through independent film.  The poster selected by an expert panel of judges will be used to promote the Festival locally, nationally and internationally.

“We are very excited to have been chosen by the good folks at the Arlington International Film Festival and know that our students will present them with some very difficult choices to make,” says Alison Poor-Donahue, Design and Digital Media Department Chair.

“It was a logical choice for our festival,” says Alberto Guzman, founder and organizer of AIFF. “We look for fresh eyes, exciting design and an affinity to what we are trying to accomplish with our annual Festival.  Knowing the strong diversity on the Mount Ida College campus, we knew it would instantly resonate.”
