The Leeds International Film Festival is the largest film festival in England outside London. Founded in 1987, it is held in November at various venues throughout the city. In 2014, the festival welcomed over 40,000 visitors and showed over 300 films from around the world.

LIFF is a portal for audiences to discover the real world of film that exists beyond regular film exhibition. LIFF primarily supports outstanding new talent and established talent that has not received deserved exposure in the UK. LIFF considers narrative, documentary and animated films, in feature-length and short formats, and in multiple genres and from all countries.

Chris Fell, Director of Leeds International Film Festival said:

"One of our favourite parts of organising LIFF every year is sharing new films with audiences for the first time. Their response to the European selection is fantastic and long-term Creative Europe support has helped to make this relationship grow and thrive."
