Leeds International Film Festival

The 31st Leeds International Film Festival will take place 2–16 November 2017.

The Leeds International Film Festival (LIFF) is the largest film festival in England outside London. Founded in 1987, it is held in November at various venues throughout Leeds, West Yorkshire. In 2016, the festival welcomed over 40,000 visitors and showed over 300 films from around the world, shorts and features, commercial and independent.

LIFF is a qualifying film festival for the Oscars® and BAFTAs

LIFF is a qualifying film festival for the Academy Awards and the winning films in Short Film City’s Louis Le Prince International Short Film Competition and World Animation Award may thus be eligible for the Academy’s Short Film Awards. The festival’s British Short Film Competition is BAFTA qualifying. There are £4000 worth of prizes across seven short film competitions.

Leeds International Film Festival Submissions and Prizes

With £6000 in cash prizes and seven categories in its Short Film City programme, the 28th Leeds International Film Festival offers fantastic opportunities to short film makers who submit their films to the festival. Entries that are selected at LIFF28 qualify for both the Academy Awards® and BAFTAs.

We are now considering films for both the Louis Le Prince International Short Film Competition and the World Animation Award. The winning film in each competition will receive a cash prize of £2000, and LIFF28 is also accepting submissions for the BAFTA-qualifying British Short Film Competition, which has a winning prize of £1000.

Leeds International Film Festival champions local filmmaking and is proud to announce a £500 cash prize for the annual Yorkshire Short Film Competition. To be eligible, the production of the film must have been wholly located within Yorkshire. We adore regional flavour, but the film can be any style or genre possible.

In 2014, LIFF28 launches its brand new Leeds International Screendance competition to support outstanding collaborations in film and dance art forms. The winning film will be awarded a cash prize of £500.

Submissions are also open for the Fanomenon Silver Melies Fantasy Short Film Award. The winner of the competition goes forward to compete for the coveted Méliès d’Or prize at Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival in October. LIFF28 has also opened submissions for Dead Short - A new competition for horror shorts. Entries are welcome from anywhere in the world but must be 10 minutes or less and have a strong horror theme.

LIFF28 supports new innovative filmmaking from a broad, international diversity of sources. LIFF28 prioritises the screening of outstanding work that has not yet received the attention it deserves and there is no premiere policy for selection.

The next deadline is August 29th. The Extended deadline for Withoutabox members is 19thSeptember.
