New York City - A film about Love, Life, Tea & Woody Allen
"Two Cities. One Film. No idea.”
A fully independent, self-made & funded feature film made in Manchester & Manhattan

'Mancattan' is a 100% independent feature film which was made in Manchester and Manhattan in 2007-2009 by two intrepid Mancunians, enitrely in their own time. Phil Drinkwater and Colin Warhurst decided to make the full-length film as a stepping-stone into the film industry and to prove that a good story, talent and firm commitment, can overcome any obstacles that get in the way of achieving the goal of making a movie yourselves.

The film is a romantic comedy about the ups, downs and neuroses of two twenty-somethings completely mystified with what their future purposes in life are meant to be. They jet off to New York to make good on promises they have made to themselves, but in chasing their dream they also realise that they could simply be running away from their problems back home.

Mancattan is a fully independent feature film made entirely by a small team from the North West of England, using their own time, talent, funds and enthusiasm. The film was made between 2007 - 2009, and shot on MiniDV format.

The film is the end result of what dogged determination, passion, hard work and the utter refusal to bow down to external pressure and challenges that presented themselves along the way.

"Mancattan" is a non-profit film made for private use, and is not intended for sales of any sort. No money is being made from the sale or download this film, and nobody was paid to make it. The film-maker's shares of any advertising revenue generated by web pages hosting the film are being donated to recognised charities in their entirety.

This film is no way sponsored by Woody Allen or any of his respective affiliates or associates. This film, the story, the characters and their opinions and discussions are in no way a direct reflection on Woody Allen, the man, his ideas or opinions.

The character's discussion of Woody Allen and his works are meant purely for narrative purposes, and always meant with a genuine sense of admiration, respect and aspiration.

Any resemblance to persons living or dead except for the purposes of satire is entirely unintentional. We make no claim to any logos, designs or artworks that may feature partially in the background of our films. Where possible we have tried to limit any potential infringement as incidental inclusion. No copyright or trademark infringement is intended.

This work is produced solely for the personal, uncompensated enjoyment of film fans and independent film-makers.


This film was made on no budget by film fans, for film fans, over the course of several years, using whatever equipment, time, talent and resources we had to hand.

As a small team inspired to make films, and inspired by the Cities of Manchester and Manhattan, we hope you, the viewer, appreciates the can-do spirit and guerilla nature of the film and hope that perhaps it will inspire other film-makers to do the best with what they have, and to tell their stories.

Thank you.
