We're curating special programmes of films available online to share with you while we all miss going to the cinema...

Our first programme is an 80-minute selection of 9 short films from previous editions of Leeds International Film Festival, all former LIFF audience favourites and mainly animations, plus two musical interludes and one Yorkshire treat.

Featuring many award-winners like Oscar-nominated Head Over Heels and The House of Small Cubes, the selected shorts relate to themes of staying home and social distancing: they include a character who has to keep 91cm apart from himself, a secret kitchen concert, and a surprise hamster neighbour...

This free programme of shorts last for approximately 80 minutes - great to watch all in one go or separately at any time, in the order as they appear below or choose your own schedule. The free streaming videos are available within each short film listing below and they can be viewed within the page.

Thank you for checking out the programme and we hope you enjoy our selection!
