Programme: Fanomenon

Fanomenon is the home of cult and fantasy cinema at Leeds International Film Festival and the lineup for this year is a heady mix of exciting new genre experiences, marathon horror events, amazing animated features, rarely-screened classics, and all-time favourites. Thrilling exclusives include the superb South Korean action blockbuster Cold Eyes, receiving its UK Premiere in Leeds, and a unique cinema presentation for the complete animated Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, screening with a brand new documentary about Frank Miller.

The ever popular annual marathons of Night of the Dead at the Hyde Park Picture House and Day of the Dead at Leeds Town Hall will together feature more than twenty hours of international horror with highlights including Australian black comedy 100 Bloody Acres, brilliant Israeli thriller Big Bad Wolves and the new films from the makers of Amer, The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears. Animation in Fanomenon 2013 is headlined by the Anime Day, with three brand new features including the third in the Rebuild of Evangelion series, a double bill of shorter films including the latest from Makoto Shinkai, and a special 25th anniversary screening of Akira.

Every year Fanomenon presents rarely-seen cult classics and this year’s selection includes German western Deadlock, Australian outback shocker Wake in Fright, and Czech sci-fi Ikarie XB-1. Giants of genre cinema are also featured in Fanomenon in the unique setting of Leeds Town Hall – see 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Exorcist, and Jaws like you’ve never seen them before.
