So proud of this amazing Manchester Metropolitan University film
I love this new film, showcasing our University, that was aired for the first time at the Chancellor’s installation on Monday.
Introduced by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Malcolm Press, the stunning five-minute film tells the inspiring story of Manchester Metropolitan, connecting our modern spirit of creativity and innovation with our 19th century roots in, among others, the Manchester Mechanics Institute and Manchester School of Art.
The campus is captured in glorious cinematic quality and sweeping shots. The film brings to life the student experience at Manchester Metropolitan while promoting our unrivalled facilities, our research and knowledge exchange, and our contribution to the wider city region.
The Vice-Chancellor said: “It was a privilege to introduce the film to our guests at the Chancellor’s installation ceremony on Monday. It set exactly the right tone for the day, and left our audience in no doubt of our illustrious tradition and our continuing potential for transformative impact. The film offers a great insight into what we’re about and what makes us distinctive. We want these films to inspire, to inform and to tell our story as we seek to realise our potential in the city region, in our teaching, through research, internationally and by strengthening our partnerships.”
Lord Mandelson, in his new role as Chancellor, features on the film talking about Manchester being at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse agenda, and the factors that attracted him to Manchester Metropolitan, including our many exciting plans for the future.
Poet Laureate Professor Dame Carol Ann Duffy talks about the University’s ability to open up, take risks and to inspire. Students feature too, praising the teaching that helps them to reach their potential.
This is just the first in a series of films which will be produced over the coming months to support the ambitions of the University and showcase our outstanding offering. The films will be developed to reach and nurture our key audiences, reinforcing our ambitions and celebrating our story.
Watch and share the film as widely as possible.
