Maine International Film Festival names this year’s branding artist

WATERVILLE — The Maine International Film Festival has selected Shawn Brewer, of Portland, the winning artist for MIFF 22, who will create the festival’s branding. In addition to receiving a $1,000 prize for his MIFF 22 artwork, Brewer’s work will gain exposure nationwide on posters, programs, advertisements and MIFF-themed merchandise.
Brewer is an illustrator, designer, printmaker, and co-founder of Outbound Press, a traveling interactive screen-printing studio, as well as co-founder of One Page Stinkers, an indie-published comic zine also located in Portland.
Brewer will lead a live, interactive screen-printing demonstration by Outbound Press. The custom prints, designed by Brewer for the 22nd Annual MIFF, will feature iconic Maine landmarks with a “coming to Maine” theme. Only MIFF attendees will have VIP access to these exclusive products.
“We are thrilled to be working with such a dynamic, talented artist,” said MIFF assistant executive director Jessica Shoudy. “It was important to us to honor Maine’s scenic beauty this year, and Shawn brought that vision to life.”
