Presented in Association with Work.Life.



A tribute to our much-loved home city, a wide-ranging selection of locally produced shorts, which tries to capture the wit, the grit, the manic energy, the romance, the dance, the willingness to take a chance, the darkness and the light, the threat and the regret, the poetry and the pagentry, the fantasy and the magic that make Manchester what it is.
