We’re excited about this year’s Liverpool Lift-Off Film Fest. Though FACT (and, previously, Wolstenholme Creative Space) have brought bleeding-edge indie films to the city, this well curated four-day event really packs ’em in, and all for a wallet-friendly price tag.

They’re bringing movies from far and wide to Liverpool in a programme that spans four different venues: the aforementioned FACT joins METAL at Edge Hill, the Kazimier and House on the schedule. It’s a nice, well positioned mixture of British and foreign (Spain, France, Israel and the US), long-form and short form, and established and newbie directors. We’ve heard of absolutely none of the films on the list, which is actually rather an exciting prospect. Sundance who?

February 25th – 28th
