This year's Leeds International film Festival is taking place between the 5th - 19th November at a number of locations across the city.

Now in its 29th year, this has become one of the largest film festivals in England and, last year alone, it welcomed over 40,000 guests. The festival breaks down into five programme sections, each comprising an enormous range of productions: Official Selection screens some of the most anticipated films of the year along with interesting new discoveries, Retrospectives is a collection of themed topics which focusses this year mainly on 'Arctic Encounters', Fanomenon is a compilation of screenings and events aimed particularly towards lovers of fantasy cinema, Cinema Versa is a number of largely documentary or political-based screenings, and Short Film City is a collection of short films from around the world.

A special line-up of live performances and concert films, music documentaries, events and awards is presented each year to keep things fresh and new. So there really is something on offer for everyone during the festival; there is even a variety of free events going. This fantastic festival brings together people who have a variety of interests and a shared passion for the screen. Productions, events and screenings are taking place around Leeds in a number of exciting venues such as the Otley Courthouse, North Bar, Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall, Leeds City Museum, and Mill Hill Unitarian Chapel among many, many others.

If you're staying at Rosedale be sure to check out the huge range of events going on in Leeds between the 5th - 19th November and see if you can squeeze in a visit! Take a look at their website for the full programme of events and additional information
