Introducing Leeds Film Player

For LIFF 2020 we are excited to launch Leeds Film Player, a new streaming platform presented by Leeds Film and Leeds Young Film to host films online for our three film festivals: Leeds International Film Festival, Leeds Young Film Festival, and the INDIs.

Leeds Film Player will be live for the duration of LIFF 2020 with over 150 feature films and shorts available to rent. You are able to view many acclaimed fiction features and documentaries from the LIFF 2020 Official Selection, Cinema Versa and Fanomenon sections, all competition programmes in the Leeds Short Film Awards, and family films from Leeds Young Film Festival.

Renting films on Leeds Film Player

Feature films on the Player cost £6 to rent, short film programmes £3, and Leeds Young Film Festival family features £3. There are also discounted packages for renting multiple films. You need to set up an account on the Player to be able to rent films.

Most of the films available on the Player can be rented at any time during LIFF 2020, with a small number of exceptions. Some of the films will have a maximum number of rentals available.

Some films are available only on the Leeds Film Player and not in venues: Night-in of the Dead marathon, Depth Perceptions: Experimental Animation Panorama, Leeds Music Video Competition, The Twentieth Century, and Snow White and the Magic of the Dwarves.
