Written by A. H. on 11 Oct 2016



After this month's Scotland Loves Anime, November also brings with it a notable place to watch some of the hottest new anime on the big screen in the form of the Leeds International Film Festival, and this year's line-up is no slouch in that regard as it brings with it a number of notable films.

Indeed, the festival's Animation Day, which takes place on Sunday, 6th November 2016 at Leeds Town Hall's Victoria Hall, boasts the following anime features from Studio Ghibli co-production The Red Turtle through to Kyoto Animation's A Silent Voice:

13:45 - Belladonna of Sadness
15:45 - The Red Turtle (Plus Father and Daughter)
20:00 - A Silent Voice

Tickets are available for each film at the link above at a cost of £8.50 each (£6.50 for concessions), or a pass for the entire Animation Day (which also includes Spanish film Psychonauts) can be purchased for £25 (£20 for concessions).

Beyond this, Friday 4th November sees the modern classic Redline hit the big screen at Leeds Town Hall's Victoria Hall from 7PM (tickets can be found here), before 9:55PM sees Interstella 5555 screened at the same venue, with tickets available here.
