The Patron's Legacy Project

For many years now, students from the UAL Foundation Diploma Course at Carlisle College have been producing film posters based on the KFF programme and exhibited in the Theatre galleries.

For 2019 they have diversified their approach in a new project called POPCORN. As a tribute to the legacy of our former Patron, Sir John Hurt, who gave so generously with his time, they are producing a series of pieces from departments including Fashion, Graphic Design, Illustration, Fine Art, Product Design and Architecture.

The students, along with film students from the University of Cumbria, are taking over the Theatre Studio on the Friday. Please look out for a programme of free to enter events when you arrive at the Festival and see what this talented group of young people have achieved.
