Leeds International Film Festival

International Film Festival in Leeds.

About

Leeds International Film Festival (LIFF) is one of the UK's biggest film events and the largest in England after London. 26th edition in 2012 is the first as an Academy Award Qualifying Festival for the long-running World Animation and Louis Le Prince International Short Film awards. LIFF is a portal for audiences to discover the real world of film that exists beyond the limitations of mainstream film exhibition. LIFF primarily supports the work of outstanding, fresh new talent in fiction and documentary filmmaking (both features and shorts), in artist film and video, and in world genre cinema – and work from existing talent that has not received deserved exposure yet in the UK.
