STUDENTS will roll out the red carpet for a film festival tomorrow night (June 8).

For the first time, Lancaster University Film Society will hold its Lancaster Entertainment and Art Film Festival (LEAF) on the campus at the Nuffield Theatre.

The festival takes place at 7pm and showcases an evening of amateur films created by society members, with submissions to date including a documentary about Lancaster and World War 2, a fashion ethics film about memories, a dramatic reflection on freshers year told through photographs and a surreal comedy.

The films will be followed by a networking and social event for film makers and fans to meet industry professionals.

There will also be a small awards ceremony for all of the film makers involved and special awards from a judging panel.

The festival is open to all. Tickets cost £5 and are available by emailing

A proportion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be going to Amnesty International.

The society is also keen to hear from any industry professionals who would be willing to come along and speak to the students on the night.
