One of Ringling College of Art and Design student Tyler Mathis' three Sarasota Film Festival designs

The Sarasota Film Festival on Thursday unveiled new promotional artwork for the 2017 festival, which takes place March 31-April 9. The three designs were created by Tyler Mathis, a motion design student at Ringling College of Art and Design. This is the second consecutive year the Film Festival and Ringling College have partnered to develop the concept and design to market and brand the festival, but this is the first time three different posters will be used. The three images selected will be featured on Film Festival banners along Main Street starting Wednesday, Feb. 15, and they will also be seen on festival materials such as mailings, playbills and sponsorship ads.
