Somme100 FILM is an international project to mark the 100th anniversary of the famous WWI Battle of the Somme during 2016 with 100 live orchestral performances of the iconic 1916 film The Battle of the Somme, shot by Geoffrey Malins and John McDowell, with the acclaimed new score by UK composer Laura Rossi, commissioned by the Imperial War Museum.

A live performance will be a unique and memorable way to experience this historic 74-minute documentary film, shot during the battle itself, and watched by over half of the adult UK population on its release in 1916 - a box office record not broken until the release of Star Wars in 1977.
