At the heart of everything we do is our enthusiasm for vibrant cities and MIF promotes Manchester on an international scale, bringing vibrancy to the city and leaving a lasting cultural legacy.

Each year, MIF brings communities together to explore innovative and forward-thinking works, hosted in some of Greater Manchester’s most stunning venues. Our support for the Festival is all about investing in creativity and creating the best environment in which people and business can thrive.

Bruntwood's partnership with MIF began at the very start of the Festival, and we're proud to have been supporters for 15 years now.

MIF is a champion of innovation and works closely with communities, both aligning our core values.

The positive impact MIF has on the economy, culture and the community is invigorating and important, and we’re proud to have been one of the first to support the internationally renowned event.

MIF19 brought £50m of economic impact, attracting artists from more than 20 countries. 302,000 visitors from over 40 countries came to the region for the Festival, as well as over one million more people from 200 countries interacting with digital content.
