Leeds International Film Festival
Published 16 November 2012 by TM

Thanks to everyone who made it down to our Leeds International Film Festival event at the Hyde Park Picture House last night. We had a few problems with the sound - apologies if it spoiled your enjoyment, but overall we think it was a success.

Matthew Bourne's improvised score for 'Un Chien Andalou' was nothing short of astonishing - it's incredibly rare to hear music of such restraint used in this context. We hope he'll do many more of these!

And in case you missed the connections, Tony Morley's DJ soundtrack for the classic French children's film The Red Balloon was entirely drawn from music used in the films of Stanley Kubrick. So now you know. Kubrick was featured in this year's festival, with three of his best films on the big screen.

Due to last minute technical difficulties we were unable to display title cards for the films we showed, so in case you were wondering, here's the complete running order for the evening:
