Artist & CEO Katherine Filice to Design 2020 Poppy Jasper International Film Festival Art Posters
Organizers of the Poppy Jasper International Film Festival (PJIFF) announced that acclaimed Gilroy artist and Articulate Solutions CEO, Katherine Filice, has been selected to design the poster art for next year’s film festival. PJIFF will again be held in Morgan Hill and Gilroy as well as expanded to Hollister and San Juan Bautista in 2020.
Festival Director Mattie Scariot stated, “We chose Katherine Filice as our artist for 2020 because she brings such a high level of thinking and artistry that reflects the caliber of films and filmmakers that we want to attract. As an internationally recognized artist, Katherine creates compelling artwork that will help enhance the reputation of our film festival and command more attention from around the world. We’re thrilled to work with her on this project!”
According to Scariot, PJIFF for the first time chose an artist to create the poster for the 2019 Film Festival, with the idea of promoting the festival from a professional artist’s perspective. Gilroy artist Nacho Moya designed the colorful 2019 poster. The 2019 film festival showcased 105 films from 28 different countries, solidifying the event’s growing reputation as a truly “international” film festival. Filice’s acceptance of the selection for 2020 continues this new tradition.
