With just a month to go until this year’s No/Gloss Film Festival in Leeds, the announcements are hotting up. The festival takes place on the 11th & 12th of October and has moved from last year’s trendy Canal Mills venue into the just as trendy, just as exciting Grade 1 listed Temple Works.
This year’s line-up includes some very cool things that set No/Gloss apart from other film festivals. Fancy going to a social media workshop led by Jon Morter, the man behind the Rage Against the Machine Christmas number one campaign? You can! How about an Indiegogo masterclass? Yep, they’ve got that covered. A super ace panel featuring film-makers who have done it themselves and are sharing their knowledge? Sorted.
Delicious food offerings? Absolutely. Temple Works have designed a very tasty looking menu of their own ‘awesome noms’ to complement already announced food vendor Streatza‘s wood-fired street pizza. I will definitely be bringing plenty of money to spend on food.
And all of that before you even get to the films. The full programme is now available for your perusal – I’ve had a good look through and there are going to be some hard decisions for me to make when it comes down to it. One highlight that sticks out for me is Danish short Reception. As a former night receptionist in a well known budget hotel chain, it sounds like this particular selection was included just for me!
Tickets are still available at £20 for entry to all films, workshops and more across the whole weekend, but they’re selling fast and won’t be available on the door.
