A special charity arts event, coming later this month, centres on short films concerning refugees. The Lost Land Festival is a full-day event, which will take place at Partisan, the co-operative arts and social space near Victoria Station. The festival was open to all filmmakers, and the organisers received around 1400 short films – not just by British people, but from people all around the world. They whittled this down to 30 of the best, which will be shown over the course of five screenings taking place throughout the day. A jury will choose the best in several categories, including those about immigration, and those made by immigrants themselves. There will also be an audience vote for their best film. All profits made will go to the charities Help Refugees and Safe Passage.
Sun 18 Nov, Partisan, 19 Cheetham Hill Road, Manchester, M4 4FY, 11am – 10pm, £3 – £20, www.lostlandfilmfestival.com
