Viva Film Festival returns for its 20th year in 2014 - running from March 7 to 23 at the Cornerhouse Cinema in Manchester. The festival will open with Days Of Vinyl, a feel-good Argentinian comedy about four record-obsessed 30-somethings who gradually realise there might be more to life - with first-time director Gabriel Nesci flying over from Buenos Aires to present his film (as well as giving an exclusive Q&A on March 9).
