To coincide with the I Bike Mcr festival, we’ll be having an evening of ever so slightly anarchist films about bikes.

As well as some nice shorts, we’ll be showing Monkey Warfare, a 2006 film about two ex-revolutionaries living underground who have their lives turned upside down by a young radical who goes from smashing SUVs to fighting gentrification with bombs.

The evening will be run by Nes from I Bike Mcr.

As always, the films starts at 7.45 and will be followed by discussion.

Entry to film £3 or £2 for unwaged, low waged, students or OAPs.

Opening Night

Thanks to everyone who attended our opening night. (We had 53 people attend which was great!)

We also had 14 people join up as members of the co-op bringing us up to 24 members – already!

A big, big thanks to Andy for leading the discussion and Jeb for stepping up to the stage.

See you all at the next screening.

The purpose of Manchester Film Co-operative is to provide public non-commercial screenings of films followed by discussions. The co-operative will show a broad range of films, but all those screened and the discussions that follow will challenge current economic, cultural, political and social arrangements and/or offer a progressive alternative. The co-operative will screen films rarely available in the mainstream. Discussions will be informal. Where possible they will be led by experts and activists, focussing on the film and its wider implications.

Overall, Manchester Film Co-operative aims to provide a lively and friendly forum to promote progressive alternatives to capitalist society. It aims to help link together different politically engaged people and groups, and to educate and inspire as many people as possible through film and discussion.
