Manchester Animation Festival (MAF): Animation Mixtape: 2020 Edition

Manchester Animation Festival (MAF) is the UK’s largest Animation Festival and is dedicated to the celebration of the animated art form. Hosted in the Manchester Central Library and at HOME, the festival is the UK’s biggest animation hub, inviting people from Manchester and beyond to share in all things animated. A hybrid festival for 2021, MAF will take place from 14-30 November, in person and online. Passes are available to purchase here

Last year in 2020, the eclectic animated short films programme of Manchester Animation Festival found their home on the small screen online, but now we’re bringing them to the big screen where they rightfully belong! Come down to Manchester Central Library to watch these short films throughout the day in hourly screening slots. More details on the films and ticket information can be found on the MAF website. Tickets for this event are FREE, though advanced booking is strongly advised.

If you’re an organisation or group who would like to talk more about getting involved with MAF in the future, please contact MAF’s Audience Development Manager, Hannah at [email protected]
