MIF Live is back for the lockdown with new work by Manchester’s creative community, encounters with artists and Festival friends, and exclusive streams of classic MIF events. MIF Live is taking a breather in June, when we’ll be launching a major new pre-Factory event. We’ll be in touch again very soon to tell you all about it – and in the meantime, you can catch up with many of the recent MIF Live shows via our What's On page and YouTube channel by clicking MIF Live.


Viewpoints is designed to encourage debate and insight into the themes and work featured in the festival. From interviews, articles to podcasts and immersive content, you can browse via watch, listen, immerse or read.


The Factory

The Factory is a world-class cultural space currently being built in the heart of Manchester. Building on the success of MIF, it will commission and present the world’s most exciting artists, attracting up to 850,000 visitors a year.

Get Involved

Thousands of people take part in each Manchester International Festival – as volunteers, as participants in shows, in skills development workshops and creative activities, or even as planners of their own micro-festival.
