We’re excited to announce the venue for the debut No/Gloss film festival in Leeds 2012.
It is not the kind of film festival with red carpets, pompous critics and pretention. It is not going to be held in an over the top hotel or expensive hall. We’re keeping things simpler, grittier (and we think more fun) in former Victorian pie factory Wharf Chambers.
::About the Venue ::
Workers co-operative Wharf Chambers is located on the ground floor of a Victorian former pork pie factory in the heart of Leeds city centre. Showcasing an array of DIY clubnights and events, Wharf Chambers celebrates the unconventional and underground Leeds scenes bubbling underneath the surface.
No/Gloss handpicked the location, happy that its eccentricities would nurture our films and film-makers, whilst creating a backdrop of superb architectural history to the event. No/Gloss aims to celebrate unconventional film-making by local and international independent producers and directors. We want to showcase films that have been created with little or no budget, and that challenge the current industry norms and standards. It’s a platform for art that isn’t compromised by big names, big brands or big budgets.
Weekend tickets are just £10, and day tickets are £6.50 www.noglossfilmfestival.co.uk/tickets-on-sale
