#commscampnorth was held at Ziferblat, Edge Street, Manchester on 27.4.17.

In our first Northern unconference we were bowled over by the enthusiasm and energy of more than 130 attendees. Many had not been to an unconference before.

Pitching and intros were live streamed on Facebook Live and Periscope by Steven Davies and Sophie Griffiths from filmcafe. You can see the Facebook Live broadcasts here and here.
