ONE of the world’s biggest festivals of student movie making comes to Sheffield in April.
The No Limits Film Festival is one of the UK’s biggest student events, an international celebration of cinema that provides an exhibition platform for student filmmakers.
Last year’s gathering screened 130 films from around the globe and organisers are promising an even greater line-up of new talent this year.
Staged by Sheffield University Students’ Union and Sheffield Hallam University – in association with the Sheffield International Documentary Festival and Art In The Parks - the two day event on April 2 and 3 involves screenings of films by young film makers from around the world at venues as varied as the Sheffield University Students’ Union building, Sheffield Hallam University and city parks.
The festival, which is open to the public, aims to push back the boundaries of how films are screened and the way they engage with the community.
And like all the best international film festivals, the event will climax with an awards ceremony where judges will include award-winning Sheffield film producer Alex Usborne, DJ Mary Anne Hobbs and the Sheffield Doc Fest team
