LEEDS SCREENDANCE COMPETITION + PANEL

11 November, Everyman Cinema

Andy Wood, Lecturer in Experimental Film & Filmmaking at the Northern Film School has organised the Screendance competition, shortlisting over 200 shorts with a theme of international dance. These innovative shorts all share a particular engagement with choreography, offering a different take on this experimental film genre.

On the selection panel this year was new Filmmaking Course Director Julius Ayodeji and the winner of the student curtain-raiser film that will kick off the screening is Filmmaking student Olivia Clancy's film Terra.

THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE + TALK

17 November, Leeds School of Arts

Cinema’s master surrealist Luis Bunuel made this withering satire of social conventions and bourgeois values late in his career as part of his successful collaboration with French writer Jean-Claude Carrière. As six upper class sophisticates repeatedly attempt and fail to have dinner together, Bunuel delights in confounding them with increasingly absurdist conceits and bizarre interruptions, blurring reality and dreams to disorienting effect.

The screening will be followed by an open audience discussion led by an expert panel from the fields of film and psychoanalysis.
