LIFF 30th Anniversary Poster

For the 30th anniversary of the Leeds International Film Festival, LIFF and Leeds Inspired commissioned 4 artists to each create a poster to celebrate this year's festival.

Anniversaries are big opportunities not only to look back on past memories and triumphs but also to look forward to what's still to come. So I wanted to represent the past and future meeting at this 30th anniversary, which is represented by the light beam (like the ones that come out of the projectors in the cinema, which I enjoy watching as much as the films sometimes)

The poem is by Leeds poet Fred MG
