Black Bear Film Festival Begins Artful Bear Project

By Margaret Allen
The Black Bear Film Festival's annual Artful Bear project is now accepting submissions. It's open to artists of all levels, professionals to beginners with great design ideas. The bears are made of dense flexible foam to be painted with thoughtful, creative ideas and coated with a waterproof sealer. They are auctioned off in a fundraiser for the film festival after being on display at locations throughout the greater Milford area. Design submissions are due by May 15th and can be emailed to [email protected] The Black Bear Film Festival, now in it's 22nd year, takes place in mid October.
