Manchester Film Co-operative organises regular non-commercial screenings of films that challenge current economic, social and political arrangements and offer progressive alternatives. Owned and run by its members, the focus is on independent films that are not available in mainstream cinema.
Screenings are followed by informal discussions led, where possible, by activists and experts. They provide a lively and friendly space in which progressive alternatives and ideas can be explored. The screenings bring together a diverse range of people and groups committed to exploring political alternatives as well as specialist cinema fans. It aims to inform, educate and inspire as many people as possible through film and discussion.
