Sounds From The Other City

Video Jam at the Kings Arms

Video Jam will be keeping us going both up and downstairs in the daytime at the Kings Arms. One of the notorious promoters in the North West, Video Jam have made a name for themselves by putting on some of the most interesting nights around. They’ve packed out the likes of Manchester Art Gallery and The Whitworth, as well as hosting the first ever outdoor stage at SFTOC. Getting singular artists to live-score films, their events are constantly some of the most challenging and intriguing around – and their line-up for the festival this year carries on that fine tradition, as well as having incidental performances throughout the day.
