Manchester Film Festival, 11–14 March 2021, from £3.50 - Book now

Manchester Film Festival is running an online edition for 2021 with a selection of streaming premieres available to watch at home this March. Boasting a whopping 130 films, including narrative features, documentaries, shorts and music videos, the festival hopes to expose viewers to brand new independent cinema from around the world.

Hosted by Filmocracy, a film and festival streaming platform designed to reward users for discovering new cinema, tickets for the festival are available from just £3.50, or £19.50 for a full festival pass. That pass will enable you to see everything from a showcase of North West shorts from local filmmakers, to the feature film premieres and filmmaker Q&As.

Included amongst those is Claudio Borrelli’s Vultures, a Brazilian film about graffiti tagger/art school graduate who sees his worlds collide with dangerous consequences; Irish thriller The Winter Lake from director Phil Sheerin; and Dead in October, Liam Desroy’s tale of two dysfunctional friends awaiting the end of the world in a large country house.
