Once again, the annual takeover of The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court will soon begin. This years line up is as good as ever, with three exclusive Premieres on the programme list. Two of them fresh from the Cannes Film Festival.

In addition, as with previous years – the popular series of BEHIND THE SCREEN events continues in conjunction with the BFI and BAFTA. All of them tie in with the screenings on the same date – although tickets are sold separately.

Somerset House is one of London’s most beautiful and iconic open air spaces. It is really a fantastic setting for an outdoor screening. This years line up includes an eclectic mix of Premieres, cinematic classics, cult favourites, double bills and recent releases – all shown under the stars on a lovely, giant 17 x 8 metre screen with full surround sound.

A lot of the dates have sold out already but there are still some tickets left for a few of the screenings.
