Queen’s Film Theatre is celebrating Belfast as a city of film makers during its Made In My Town – Made in Belfast season of film and rarely seen digital archive footage.
Supported by Film Hub NI as part of BFI Film Audience Network, the season is part of the BFI Britain on Film project which preserves and promotes access to key film and television archives.
The Made in Belfast season has been running from Friday 29 January – but runs until Saturday 6 February – so you still have plenty of time to catch at least one!
It will encompass a diverse range of Belfast film favourites, from independent film makers to guerilla style film making, demonstrating Belfast’s unique film personality.
Britain on Film is the result of the BFI National Archive and the UK’s national and regional film archives and rights holders joining forces to bring these films together with a major programme of curation and digitisation that started in 2012 and continues until the end of 2017.
Everyone in the UK can search BFI Player for their personal histories, watch newly digitised films on DVDs and enjoy special Britain on Film screenings and events across the UK on http://player.bfi.org.uk/britain-on-film.
Susan Picken – Head of Queen’s Film Theatre said:
“ The Made in Belfast season will give film lovers a chance to revisit film favourites on the big screen; celebrate the rich heritage of Belfast’s cinematic history and recognise Belfast’s burgeoning production industry. We are delighted to be showcasing an amazing selection of films and digital archive footage from the past as well as previewing recent significant productions.”
