The fifth-annual Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House will welcome guests including Pedro Almodovar and Penelope Cruz.
The pair will be on hand to open the season with the UK premiere of Broken Embraces on July 30.
Other Film4 Summer Screen films will be introduced by industry figures such as Stephen Frears, Freida Pinto, John Hurt and Chris Dickens.
Somerset House and Film4 have teamed up with BAFTA to present Behind the Screen, a new initiative which allows audiences to meet key movie industry figures face-to-face every evening, with family workshops and screenings each weekend of the season.
Highlights of Behind the Screen include Oscar-winning editor Chris Dickens on Slumdog Millionaire, Nic Roeg in a rare interview, and Gurinder Chadha on Jerome Robbins’ 1961 classic West Side Story.
Films set to screen also include Alien, The Shawshank Redemption, Wings of Desire, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Don’t Look Now, and Strangers On A Train.
