Special guests announced for the 2018 Manchester Film Festival
MANIFF18 takes place at the ODEON Great Northern Warehouse from the 1st -4th March, and will welcome the artist trio, comprising U.S. actor and artist Shia LaBeouf, Finnish artist Nastja Säde Rönkkö, and British artist Luke Turner, who will all be in Manchester to premiere their documentary film #TAKEMEANYWHERE before its worldwide release.
The film charts LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner as they embarked on a month-long project to hitchhike the internet, in a work commissioned by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Finnish Institute in London. Each day, the artists posted their coordinates online using the hashtag #TAKEMEANYWHERE and waited for a ride. Whoever then appeared could take them wherever they chose. For the duration of the project, their journey could be tracked in real time at take me anywhere.net, with their path entirely in the hands of the public.
The film will premiere at the festival at 6.00pm on Friday 2nd March, with the thought-provoking trio taking part in a live post-screening Q and A with the film-loving audience of #MANIFF18
Manchester Film Festival is also delighted to announce that LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner will take part in a Filmmakers Studio at 3pm in the Odeon Great Northern. This FREE event is an in-depth interview with the trio about their art practice, how they came to work together, and their creative process.
