We are delighted to announce that our host venue HOME, Manchester’s centre for international, contemporary film, art and theatre has today announced their support for the Manchester Animation Festival by committing to host the festival for a further 5 years. Dave Moutrey, Director and Chief Executive of HOME said;

HOME is delighted to be supporting MAF again this year. In 2016 we saw a great programme of exciting and important films and events reaching a wide audience, developed by a committed and talented team. MAF fits the local film ecology perfectly given the importance of animation production to our region. It therefore makes great strategic sense to us for HOME to cement this excellent working relationship with an agreement to host MAF for the next five years. We hope that this will provide the stability necessary for MAF to grow and flourish.
