Workers of Manchester; Past and Present Film Challenge submission

Calling all film-makers of the North! We want your short films about our city's industrial past. It's an exciting opportunity to create living history about the very thing that has driven Manchester's development over the years and the people who make the city tick.

You will have access to footage from the North West Film Archive (NWFA) and recordings of Northern Quarter residents telling their stories and memories in their own words - and of course you can take inspiration from the thriving, working city that surrounds us today.

    About your film

    A screening will take place at the Penny Theatre on April 5 to showcase selected works. All filmmakers who submit short films as part of the project will be invited to a special reception before the Penny Theatre show for celebratory drinks and an awards ceremony.

    About this project

    Workers of Manchester - Past and Present is a series of MadLab events about the history of the Northern Quarter, called The Ghosts of St Pauls. Stay tuned for further details. This project is supported by an All Our Stories grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. All Our Stories, a brand new small grant programme, launched earlier this year in support of BBC Two’s The Great British Story, has been designed as an opportunity for everyone to get involved in their heritage. With HLF funding and support, community groups will carry out activities that help people explore, share and celebrate their local heritage.
