We are pleased to announce our new film programming partnership with HOME, centre for international contemporary art, theatre, film and books in Manchester. 

HOME will provide advice and support, enabling us to continue and extend our presentation of an exceptional, UK-leading programme of new film releases. Exchanging knowledge and expertise, we will work together to develop audience diversity and offer an extensive programme of touring seasons, talent development initiatives and events offering exclusive access to emerging and established film makers.

Eddie Berg, Chief Executive of Rich Mix said “Initially the partnership will help us expand and diversify our film programme, drawing on HOME’s expertise and success in this area, but will eventually lead to an even more ambitious collaborative model of working between two of the UK’s most celebrated arts centres.”

Jonty Claypole, Chair of HOME Trustees, Director of BBC Arts and Rich Mix regular commented “I am thrilled for these two leading independent, not-for-profit organisations to come together and collaborate – it provides a fantastic and unique opportunity for HOME and Rich Mix to expand their programmes, and increase awareness and attendance for specialised film.”

Amanda Nevill, Chief Executive of the BFI said "It's fantastic to see venues in different parts of the UK collaborating to focus on engaging and exciting new and diverse audiences with British and international film." 

We will keep you posted on our partnership working and film programme developments, strengthening the links between the capital and the great northern cultural powerhouse of Manchester.
