Event Details

As the urban myth states: "Like Cannes, but better !" the St Leonards International Film Festival (SLIFF) is about 'real' filmaking in a digital age.

SLIFF is a unique 'film as film' festival, dedicated to celebrating and promoting celluloid-based filmmaking in the broadest sense of the word: from archival, found and rescued, forgotten classics, rarities, home movie heritage, and more. By showcasing what and encouraging the contemporary production of films and moving image artworks using such archaicallly modern technologies.

Since its sell-out launch in 2012, SLIFF has kept the love of celluloid alive, organising small cine-happenings locally and further afield (Deptford, Paris, Rio de Janeiro), and now has come the time to get the show on the road again in sunny St Leonardos, in even grander style!
SLIFF will take over the Masonic Hall in St Leonards in the evening of 25th September for its flagship event of unique celluloid wonders… 

Confirmed for SLIFF2015 so far:
- a couple of masterpieces from the master of the aesthetics of celluloid decay, Bill Morrison
- the first ever short film from the cin'alchemical-genius Alejandro Jodorosky, and a masterpiece of the arcane stop motion geniuses of the Quay Brothers
- a very rare screeening of "Maldoror", the super8 epic feature film, with mrExploding Cinema (aka Duncan Reekie) himself in attendance
- some nearly lost cine treasures, rescued through the Celluloid Surgeries held at The Old Chemist
- the world-wide première of 3 locally produced super8 short films
- the second ever screening of the celebrated “Collective Reel” - the scratch super8 produced by the 43 participants of the SLIFF Cine Nights series of experimental ‘scratch super8’ workshops, held last year (a special limited edition DVD will be available on the night containing the live recording of the premier screening of this piece held at The Old Chemist Studios in St Leonards in December 2014, with improvised live-response by a 10-strong genial impromptu gathering fronted by Ottie Albeitz, Darren Morris et al)
- a bring-your-own-celluloid space for DIY projections during the intermissions
- all this with live accompaniment from members of the extremely prolific local improv scene coordinated by the unequalled maestro Darren Morris
- a collaboration with other super8-dedicated festivals further afield (UK and Brazil)
- some surprises, and much more...

St Leonards International Film Festival, Endwell Productions and St Leonards Film Society

St Leonards International Film Festival (SLIFF)  celebrates and promotes local filmmaking talent, bringing the excellence of the international real film making community to our sunny patch of the English south coast.

It is organised as a joint venture between Endwell Productions and The St Leonards Film Society.

Endwell Productions is a not-for-profit international creative consultancy and independent film production company based in St Leonards-On-Sea (East Sussex, UK), which specialises in developing multidisciplinary projects using creativity, art and film as powerful tools of communication. Celluloid-based media is one of Endwell's passion and keeping it alive within the digital-age of facile hegemony is one of its missions.

The St Leonards Film Society (SLFS) is a volunteer-run organisation set-up in 2009 to make films accessible to the whole of the local community. It organises film screenings and pop-up cinema events in non-conventional venues (churches, community halls, art galleries, the great outdoors), with Saturday matinees for kids and a varied programme of high quality international films at fair prices. Currently the SLFS has set up an ambitious multipurpose arts/cinema/community venue in the landmark historic local building which has been 'derelict' for 30 years (The Old Observer Building), which has open to the public later in the summer 2015.
