Every year in August, the Film4 Summer Screen at the Somerset House offers a chance to see blend of classic, cult, and contemporary films spread over 14 nights on London’s largest outdoor screen.
And each year, Print Club London commissions some of their favourite illustrators to create a poster for each of the films – and they're now on sale from Somerset House or PCL's website.
Last year's Summer Screen Prints was a huge success with artists showing off their excellent unique posters of films, therefore, for the fourth year, Summer Screen Prints is back, with a new collection of posters to view and buy. This is an excellent exhibition to see a series of unique contemporary screenprinted posters that have been inspired by films from the current year's selection.
As in previous years, the posters were created under the curation of Print Club London – who picked the artists and paired them with the films.
The exhibition runs alongside the film season from July 27 to August 17, from 10am to 6pm (and from 6.30-9pm for those attending screenings from August 2017). You will also be able to buy the posters from the Print Club London website.
The first week kicks off with a screening of Things To Come on August 4, the latest film by Mia Hansen-Løve (and not, as we originally thought, the 1935 sci-fi classic Things to Come based on the story The Shape of Things To Come by HG Wells). Paul Wardski has created this poster for the film.
