No/Gloss is ab independent film festival in Leeds which celebrates DIY and unconventional cinema and low/no budget films from independent, local and international film-makers.

Conceived in early 2012, it was born out of a need for a local film festival that supports independent film-making. No/Gloss is a no-frills film festival which screens films in unique and unexpected locations. Taking place on the 3rd & 4th October at The Carriageworks, Leeds, there is a eclectic array of short from around the world. The festival also hosts the following feature length films:

Benny Loves Killing

Benny Loves Killing is the first feature film from Look/Think Films. The film follows the struggles of a student making a horror film, only for her life to fall apart. A tense, claustrophobic love letter to cinema.

Marzipan Flowers

Winner of the Best Independent film at 2014 Jerusalem film festival and nominated for an Israeli Academy Award, Marzipan Flowers is a unique and highly original piece of film making. It tells the story of Hadas, a handsome 48-year-old widow who decides to escape kibbutz life and move to the big smoke of Tel Aviv.

Meet The Hitlers

Meet the Hitlers is a feature documentary that examines the relationship between names and identity, by exploring the lives of people who are linked by the name “Hitler.” This character-driven story offers an intimate portrait of its subjects whose reactions to their name span the spectrum of human experience, from tragedy to comedy, and heartbreak to hope.
