Part One of the festival will take place in the Spring (10th – 16th May) as an online event over on Bingewave showcasing all the international films in the festival plus our themed and category programmes which includes some UK films.  Our British section, Part Two will be presented in the Autumn edition (19th – 24th October), screening in-person across multiple venues in Manchester and showcasing the very best  of local, North West and  UK wide filmmaking talent.

Please see the list below for the programmes that are appearing in our May premiere online edition. For participating filmmakers, if one of your films in one of these programmes then you should have heard from us by now, if not then please contact us to confirm the position regarding your film.
