The Northern Film School at Leeds Beckett University, in partnership with LIFF, presents the first annual Louis Le Prince Lecture. The Lecture showcases the work of outstanding contemporary film artists, as well as provoking discussion and debate about film as an art form. The speaker for this inaugural event is the renowned film, video and installation artist John Smith, who has had over fifty works shown in independent cinemas, galleries and on television since 1972. John Smith’s work subverts the perceived boundaries between fiction and documentary, playfully exploring the language of cinema while remaining rooted in everyday life.
