In a cinematic first for Northern Ireland, Queen’s Film Theatre, Belfast Film Festival, Cinemagic, the Nerve Centre and Strand Arts Centre have joined forces to present 30 Under 30, a new season of must-see films to watch on the big screen before the age of 30.
Taking place in Belfast and Derry~Londonderry from August to October, the films featured in 30 Under 30 address a wide range of issues and concerns for under-30s, including becoming an adult, love and friendship, finding your place in the world, work life and dreams versus reality.
Commenting on the idea behind ’30 Under 30’, Claire Shaw, Press and Marketing Officer with Cinemagic said: “Part of the fun of the season will be in joining the dots between artists early on in their career and what they went on to do, and also looking at how film influences us in terms of fashion, music and even the language that we use.”
 
Covering 45 years of cinema, famous faces featuring in 30 Under 30 include Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Jennifer Aniston, Ben Stiller, Bill Murray and David Bowie.  Directors whose work features in the season include Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, the Coen Brothers and Lena Dunham, who went on to make the HBO smash hit TV series Girls.
30 Under 30 will also outdoor events, DJ sets and online and offline discussions, as well as offering the chance to vote for the 30 Under 30 Audience Choice film which will be shown at Strand Arts Centre in October.
