This shorts programme screened as part of the 2017 Leeds International Film Festival on Wednesday 15 November at 8.30pm in the Albert Room at Leeds Town Hall.

Explore the fascinating world of life on the streets in this international selection of short documentary films. The public realm is an expression of a society’s shared culture, bringing together aspects of history and ownership, of access and traffic, of identity and self-expression, of citizenship and resistance. Let these visionary city planners, artists, photographers and playful urban rebels be your guide! We will also peer into back gardens and over fences, and see life on the streets through the eyes of worried European householders, who prefer to stay at home.
