Ageing does not have to be seen merely as being connected to limitations and restrictions, but can also involve new outlooks, curiosity, and opportunities
Together Manchester Film Festival for Communities
Fridays from 1pm-3pm several times a year.: Screenings at Manchester Communication Academy. All welcome. Ask us for the dates!!
There are parts of our communities where people may feel left out, or marginalised, or discriminated against.
We can help to change this by bringing people together, of all backgrounds and ages, to screenings of films with positive images, with chances to interact with each other.
Our project was launched with discussions, opened by the Lord Mayor of Manchester: North West Film Archives, Central Library, Manchester
The Silver Screen European Film Festival comes to Greater Manchester.
Our first step was to team up with the European Silver Screen Festival which shows films which show older people in a positive light.
Ageing is something that touches everybody. Ageing doesn't have to be seen as limitations and restrictions: it also can involve new outlooks, curiosity, and opportunities. This understanding is important for people of all ages.
These films are shown throughout the year here in Greater Manchester.
