Cinema Arts Centre Introduces “Recreate Your Own Movie Poster Contest”

This fun contest gives movie lovers a creative outlet by recreating their favorite poster using items they find around the house

Cinema Arts Centre (CAC) has launched a new contest for movie lovers in search of a creative project during the quarantine. The Cinema Arts Centre Movie Poster Contest asks that participants recreate their favorite movie poster using items that they have around the house and share it to social media in return for the chance to win gift certificates to CAC.

“I’m so excited about this contest.” Said Cinema Arts Centre Director of Development Rene Bouchard. “As an artist, I love working with limitations, like having to use items I can find without leaving the house. And seeing other people sharing their creativity and their favorite films just brings me joy. I hope it brings joy to others too. Creating joy is an activity I can get behind 100%”

The Cinema Arts Centre Movie Poster Contest is just one of the many at-home programs and projects CAC is offering to stay engaged with the community and provide some fun activities to those sheltering-in-place.

One contest participant, Maria Ansley, said this about her submission: “This piece integrates my love of classic science fiction and Art Deco. I have attempted to maintain the integrity of the artwork while incorporating bits of myself into it.  My interpretation combines a cookie sheet, a bullet casing from my deployment in Bosnia, silverware, Korean chopsticks, a mirrored candle, a headset box, and a polyhedral dice set.  I look forward to a sultry summer evening in the garden followed by a big helping of Cult Café.”
