Here until Sunday, there’s still plenty to see at this year’s edition of the Manchester International Film Festival.

Hosted at the Odeon Great Northern, this year’s event has marked the biggest to date, with over 130 films being screened, all of them playing in Manchester for the very first time.

As always, there’s an eclectic mix of screenings to suit all tastes throughout the remainder of the festival.

In the documentary section, making their world premieres, there’s Silver Spitfire: The Longest Flight, which documents a British pilot’s attempt to circumnavigate the Earth in a vintage World War II fighter plane, and Crackbury, an insight into current day relationships between two undercover officers and the people they arrested during the crack epidemic on Long Island.

Features include Long Way Back, which follows Lea during an eventful journey home with her estranged father after leaving university under tragic circumstances, and The Art of Love, the story of Eva, who in a passionless marriage begins to write reviews for a sex toy startup.

There’s plenty to get stuck into before the festival draws to a close this weekend, head over to the Manchester Film Festival website for full listings and tickets.
