Silver Lining – Carlisle College

“Silver Lining” is the latest collaboration between the Foundation Diploma course at Carlisle College of the Arts and the Keswick Film Festival and will be on display at Theatre by the Lake from 10 Feb- 15 March, 2024

The title evokes echoes of silver screens, the act of drawing and hope in dark times, reflecting themes in the films in this year’s festival. Each year Visual Communication and Illustration students design alternative posters – visual equivalents for the films, most of which are unseen by the artists, based on the themes, settings and storylines, similar in approach to the pioneering Eastern European film posters of the 60’s and 70’s, where, untroubled by Hollywood conventions, designers gave free reign to their imaginations in designing parallel artworks that existed in their own right.

The exhibition also includes outcomes devised by Fine Art and Fashion students responding to the broader idea of cinema as “shadows and light”

Access during performance times, and after 12 from Monday – Saturday on request, ask at Box Office or contact us prior to your visit, contact details below.
