On Hiatus

Since our screening of “A Minority Pastime” at HOMEmcr in September 2016, Manchester Film Cooperative are no longer hosting film screenings due to lack of capacity.

Please enjoy or ourchive of screenings and film information below.

We can still be reached using our contact form.

Dear Manchester Film Co-op Audience Community! We are looking for applicants to immediately join our Board or assist us in preparing for The Bigger Picture Рour Film Festival which will be screened across Manchester venues during March 2015.

In particular we are seeking board members who can offer skills, time and a passion for raising consciousness of social and environmental issues through the medium of film. Additionally, we would like to attract people with fund-raising and accounting skills & experience (initially unpaid until funding is successful). Familiarity with co-operative organisations desirable but not essential.


(July 2013 pedal-powered screening of Bag It at Plattfields Boathouse)

We hope you have enjoyed attending some of Manchester Film Co-op’s screenings from September 2012 after the organising group was reformed – the incorporate 2 previous members – in the summer of that year. Hopefully you will agree that we have screened a lot of high quality, thought -provoking films, involved you in engaging discussions on very topical big themes, at a range of exciting venues over the last couple of years.

A couple of the key movers and shakers in our organising group have had to move on in recent months. In anticipation of curating and coordinating a very networked, modular style Film Festival, MFC are now ready to get organised in a more formalised way. We plan to meet before 13 August with candidates who are successful in putting themselves forward. To signal your interest, please send an email including at minimum a paragraph about your self and background ASAP to: Sarah Redman – sahara6363@ntlworld.com

With thanks & best wishes
Manchester Film Co-op


Would you like to get more involved with Manchester Film Co-op?

We are currently on the look-out for additional organisers to assist with hosting our monthly screenings. Since 2008, we have showcased a wide variety of films which challenge current economics, politics and society. Our volunteer organisers cover areas such as choosing/sourcing films, liaising with venues, running the box-office, working projection equipment and helping to publicize our events across the city.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in getting involved with, please do get in touch with us via our contact page.
