Film Night | Pressing On: The Letterpress film (2017)

Event at Art Gallery of Alberta



Time Price
Wed, 7pm - 9pm

The modern world was born on a printing press. Once essential to communication, the 500-year-old process is now in danger of being lost as its caretakers age. From self-proclaimed basement hoarders to the famed Hatch Show Print, Pressing On: The Letterpress Film explores the question: why has the letterpress survived in a digital age?

Captivating personalities blend with wood, metal and type as young printers strive to save this historic process in a film created for the designer, type nerd, historian and collector in us all.

This film screening is co-presented by the Alberta North Chapter of the Graphic Designers of Canada, the Society of Northern Alberta Print-artists (SNAP), and the Art Gallery of Alberta.
