Manchester Student Film Festival

We are setting up a film festival in Manchester that is directed at showcasing student films over the course of two days. We aim to provide a platform for young creatives from across the North hoping to gain access into the film industry and to help them gain recognition for their work. We believe there is a lot of unrecognised talent within the North, and therefore this festival will give a great opportunity to both potential collaborators and for the young filmmakers involved.

Through interaction between viewers and the artist, we hope to provide the artist with beneficial feedback and potential contacts for the future. By collaborating with a group of well-known and up and coming businesses and event companies our festival will reach out to a wide community across the North, including locals, students, professionals within the industry and people interested in film and local issues.

We want to promote awareness for the new talent arising in the North as well as local issues - in particular homelessness, which we will donating our profits and £1 of every ticket sold to a charity that supports this. We are working with Big Change Society and Love For The Streets in order to make sure the money is used in the best way.

The festival will allow us the opportunity to source new and diverse material; gaining insight into the creative process and how productions are made via intimate Q&A sessions. We also believe this festival can provide the potential for collaborating between film-makers and production companies regarding future ideas and projects.
For example, we have gained support from Red Production Company in Manchester who will provide representatives at the festival. We think this will give a great opportunity to both potential collaborators and for the young filmmakers involved.
