About The Beyond Babel Multilingual Film Festival

Alluding to the Bible story of The Tower of Babel and the curse of diversity of tongues, Beyond Babel is a film festival that aims to celebrate multilingual life, showcase a wide range of films, share discussions on film aesthetics, and broaden the visibility of multilingual communities on screen. Planned by the FLAME research group at Manchester Metropolitan University, the 5th edition of Beyond Babel remains true to its core values: embrace the beauty of multilingualism; showcase transnational film productions from different regions of the world; curate multilingual films which connect with the personal, the local, and the global and can open conversation across cultures. This year’s programme will bring together four afternoons of screenings, with film introductions and Q&A sessions. It explores a wide range of themes: cultural differences, multilingualism, homeland, education, gender and sexuality, global citizenship, mobility, immigration, integration and identity. The festival aims to engage, inspire, connect and celebrate the culturally diverse communities of Manchester.

Film, Languages and Media in Education (FLAME) is a pioneering research group at Manchester Metropolitan University established in 2013 and dedicated to the development of research and knowledge exchange activity in the areas of Pedagogy, Languages, Film and Media.
