On the 11th and 12th of October this year a cinematic cavalcade will be taking place up North in Leeds. The event is the third annual No Gloss Film Festival and what makes this festival unique is it showcasing independent films of all shapes and sizes. While many of the bigger festivals seem to show the same batch of films as they start their march towards the Oscars No Gloss is proud to show “films unlike anything you have ever seen”.
Considering the fact that 2013’s line-up included a felt animation about a pig’s digestive system I’d say they aren’t overselling the individual nature of the festival.
Last year we sent along Mild Concern’s Northern Correspondent, Rach, to see for herself and she enjoyed it so much
we’re sending her back she has insisted on returning. I’m almost certain it was the excellent line-up that has tempted her back and not the excellent food on offer but you never can be sure.
You can read the full line-up, buy tickets, and generally get distracted over at the pleasantly glossy No Gloss Film Festival website. You can currently get early bird tickets for just £12 which covers the whole weekend and is painfully the same cost as seeing just one film at a regular film festival.
I’m genuinely gutted that I can’t make it myself and urge you to go along and enjoy something a little different this October.
