Leeds film Festival

Leeds film festival The Leeds International Film Festival takes place during the first week of October and proves more popular every year. With plenty of premieres and workshops on offer it’s easy to see why tourists flock from across the globe to enjoy the sights and sounds on offer.

Now in its 20th year, the Leeds International Film Festival is dedicated to bringing you the best and brightest films from around the world. Film fans have the chance to see many productions they might not otherwise get a chance to see. Incredibly just one percent of films made are actually given a general release so this is your opportunity to see just what the other 99 percent are like.

The festival is dedicated to bringing you those films with the International New Directors Competition and the Louis le Prince Shorts and Animation competitions. Offering the cream of the crop from the UK and Yorkshire (previous premieres have included The Nine Lives of Thomas Katz - with director Ben Hopkins answering questions afterwards) and Hollywood premieres including Nicholas Hytner’s Centre Stage and the UK Premiere of Curtis Hanson’s Wonder Boys, starring Michael Douglas.

The 2006 festival is set to be the largest and most successful yet, so make sure you get to Leeds between 3rd and 13th November.

Youngsters also have the opportunity to take part in some of the exciting projects surrounding film and animation production with the newer Leeds Childrens’ International Film Festival that takes place each March.

Events take place across the city and participating cinemas include The Star Cinema, Hyde Park Picture House and The Packhouse.

Those wishing to be involved should contact the Film Festival Office, PO Box 596, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 8YQ. For more information check out the official festival website.
