The 13th Belfast Film Festival is opening this Thursday and we are very excited about it.
The festival is opening with ‘Made in Belfast’.
The debut film for writer and director Paul Kennedy.
“Jack Kelly (Ciaran McMenamin) is a successful novelist who leads a reclusive life in Paris. His first novel, Made in Belfast, was a critical and commercial success – there was only one problem – it exposed the private lives and innermost secrets of his friends and family, and they haven’t spoken to him since. But when circumstances conspire to bring him back to his hometown for one weekend, he decides to spend that time putting things right with the friends he betrayed, the brother he abandoned, and the fiancée he jilted.”
Book tickets here.
We are also quite excited about The Breakfast Club.
“A SCHOOL LIBRARY MOVIE SCREENING IN A BELFAST SCHOOL LIBRARY.”
“Belfast Film Festival enters those difficult teenage years with a screening of the best movie set in a school library ever! And for a special screening, a special location; Royal Belfast Academical Institution’s own Christchurch Library. They were five students with nothing in common, faced with spending a Saturday detention together in their high school library. At 7 a.m., they had nothing to say, but by 4 p.m., they had bared their souls to each other and become good friends. To the outside world they were simply the Jock, the Brain, the Criminal, the Princess and the Basket Case, but to each other, they would always be the Breakfast Club.”
Book tickets here.
And of course not forgetting the Wrapped in Plastic – Twin Peaks night.
For one night only, the Black Box shall become the Black Lodge, as we go into the deep dark woods of Twin Peaks. Bunch Of Cults film club present a screening of Fire Walk With Me, David Lynch’s cinematic conclusion to one of the greatest television series ever.
Afterwards stay for the David Lynch Twisted Prom!!
