Leeds International Film Festival 2017

Leeds International Film Festival 2017

Author: Seb Reid

Seb has been an anime fan since the late 90s and is particularly fond of anything post-apocalyptic, amusing, catgirly, ecchi or containing exquisite aerial battles. Living in Leeds with his cats and living up the bachelor life, Seb enjoys whiling the nights away deep in a book, game or a damn good series. 

Add the 11th October into your calendar for what is normally the final film festival of the year. LIFF, known for its Fanomeon film series which plays a selection of anime and science fiction films, will be announcing its programme for 2017 on the 11th October. 

Join them on Wednesday 11 October for the launch of the full programme for the 31st Leeds International Film Festival. The launch at Vue at The Light will include a 45-minute showcase of trailers for many of the great films from across the epic LIFF 2017 programme.

There will be two opportunities to see the showcase, at 5.45pm and 7pm: entry is free and to guarantee your seats we recommend reserving them on Eventbrite. The LIFF 2017 Free Guide will be available for the first time at the launch and you can pick up a copy at Vue from 5pm.

This year’s Leeds International Film Festival takes place from 1 to 16 November at venues around The Headrow including Leeds Town Hall, Leeds Art Gallery, Millennium Square, Vue at the Light, City Varieties, Waterstones and Headrow House, plus Everyman Cinema and Hyde Park Picture House.

Passes for LIFF 2017 and Fanomenon film marathons, plus early tickets for some of this year’s highlight events are on sale from Thursday 28 September. Fanomenon Day of the Dead is on Saturday 4 November at Leeds Town Hall and Fanomenon Night of the Dead is on Friday 10 November at Hyde Park Picture House.
