Manchester Film Festival

Saturday, 07 March 2020 until Sunday, 15 March 2020

Over the 4 day weekend #18 Manchester once again attracted crowds of film critics, filmmakers, distributors, fans and of course the industry professionals of our established Jury Select, who witnessed an eclectic mix of diverse films to savour and remember. The north- west themed opening night was packed to the rafters with the ODEON cinema looking more reminiscent of a premier league football ground than the city’s largest multiplex, with filmmakers from every corner of the globe mixing and milling in the crowds of film fans looking to get their first chance to catch the films of the festival. With strands from ‘Women in Film’ to ‘Rising Stars and ‘Be who you are say what you feel’ MANIFF17 went from opening night through to closing awards with a glow of world premieres, filmmaker panel discussions and special guests that included Timothy Spall, Karen Allen, Olivia Cooke, Stef Dawson, Bronwen Hughes, James Nesbitt and many more writers, directors, producers and actors from the world of stage and screen.
