Leeds International Film Festival Submissions

Exclusive preview of All Is Lost at LIFF27

It’s less than a week until LIFF27 begins, and we have more exciting announcements to make. Gravity in 3D has been Leeds International Film Festival’s fastest ever selling Opening Gala, with both screenings at Everyman Leeds now completely sold out. We are very pleased to reveal several new additions which are not in the free LIFF27 festival guide – including an exclusive preview of All Is Lost, starring Robert Redford. Please click on the films’ titles for tickets.

All Is Lost
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.


Please note that at the Hyde Park Picture House on Tuesday 12 November, the 6pm screening of Kwaidan has a running time of 161 min (not 125 min as listed in the free guide). As a result Child’s Pose will start at 9pm, not 8.30pm as previously advertised.
