Industry Delegates

Manchester Film Festival 2018 is open to applications for accreditation from all individuals currently working in the UK or International film industry. 

INDUSTRY delegate Accreditation benefits

Access to all screenings at the festival.

Your delegate pass will give you access to every public screening at the Manchester Film Festival. Unlike other festivals that have specific industry screenings and then "subject to availability" access to public screenings, we believe films are best watched with a public audience sharing the experience. Your delegate pass will give you access to every public screening, including opening and closing night includiung awards. You will be able to pre book your seats for each screening ahead of the public tickets going on sale, via the maniff website. 

events and after-parties for Industry and Filmmakers

Throughout the Festival we host several events for our Industry delegates and official selection filmmakers. These relaxed (and often boozy) events and after-parties allow new friendships to be forged, ideas to be shared and future collaborations to be created. Please be aware that the after-parties have been known to go on until 6am!

Full details of these events will be made available closer to the Festival.

Access to other Industry Events and Panels

Throughout the festival we will be organising workshops, interviews and panel discussions both with our official selection filmmakers and industry professionals. These events may take place before 12pm so be prepared to attend with a hang over.

An exclusive area to relax, grab a coffee and chat about the films between events.
