Leeds International Film Festival Submissions

New film announcements, extra screenings + programme information at LIFF27

When making your LIFF27 plans, don’t forget all the new announcements we’ve made in the past few weeks, including Special Previews and guest appearances which aren’t in the festival guide, as well as a whole extra week of screenings at Vue. You can read about the new film announcements and the extra week of screenings at Vue below.

Also, please note that if purchasing tickets for films at LIFF27 on the day they are being screened, they should be purchased from the venue in person. Tickets are not available online on the day, and we cannot guarantee their availability from the festival Box Office, but tickets will be available from the venue from an hour before the first film screening at the venue on that day begins.

New film and guest announcements

All Is Lost (Special Preview)
Dir. J.C.Chandor, USA, 2013, 106 min
Leeds Town Hall – Victoria Hall, Thu 21 Nov, 18:00
LIFF27 presents an exclusive preview of one of the most acclaimed films of the year, featuring an astonishing performance from Robert Redford. Compared by many critics to Gravity, All is Lost is an open-water thriller about one man’s battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea.

Jeune & Jolie
Dir. François Ozon, France, 2013, 95 mins
Vue, Fri 15 Nov, 20:30 & Vue, Mon 18 Nov, 18:30
The provocative new drama from François Ozon, Jeune & Jolie is the story of beautiful 17-year-old Isabelle (Marine Vacth) and her secret life as a high-class online escort. Ozon’s refusal to judge, coupled with Vacth’s alternatively naked and veiled performance make for a disturbing and deeply affecting work.

Dir. Ask Hasselbalch, Denmark, 2013, 77 min
Everyman, Sun 10 Nov, 12:30 & Hyde Park, Sun 17 Nov, 11:30
A delightful junior superhero spoof from Denmark, Antboy has enough action, comedy, and charm to entertain movie fans of all ages. A shy twelve-year-old is transformed after being bitten by a very special ant. (Rated PG, with English subtitles – child tickets at the Hyde Park screening are just £1).

Cannibal Holocaust with director Ruggero Deodato
Dir. Ruggero Deodato, Italy, 1980, 95 min
Hyde Park Picture House, Fri 15 Nov, 23:00
A special late-night screening of seminal cult horror classic Cannibal Holocaust, with director Ruggero Deodato in attendance. This digitally remastered version is the most uncut ever shown in the UK and is accompanied by the short documentary The Long Road Back From Hell about the film’s history and influence.

Filmage: The Story of Descendents / ALL
Dirs. Deedle Lacour, Matt Riggle, USA, 2013, 90 min
Hyde Park Picture House, Wed 20 Nov, 20:30
LIFF27 and Recon present a revealing documentary about pioneering pop-punk group the Descendents, featuring interviews with the band, Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more. The film traces the group from their roots in the early 1980s American hardcore punk scene.
