Marty McCann, star of Killing Bono and Brian Henry Martin, Festival Chair at the Movie House, Dublin Road.
Movie House Dublin Road will once again host a number of the screenings for the 11th Belfast Film Festival, which kicks off on March 31st with the UK premiere of Killing Bono.
The festival was launched recently by Northern Ireland born native, Marty McCann, from Killing Bono.
Other highlights of the jam-packed programme - which attracted 16,000 visitors to the events last year - include the attendance of the cast and crew at the closing night premiere of Behold the Lamb at the Movie House on the Dublin Road on Thursday, 14th April. This is another local production by Dumbworld Productions and is co-directed by John McElduff, who has worked throughout Europe on various productions.
Movie House will also host a gala screening of TT3D: Closer to the Edge in which the famous Isle of Mann TT is screened in stunning 3D - with Michael Dunlop featuring. As with all of the events at the Belfast Film Festival this one is worth sitting back and enjoying the ride!
At the launch of the festival, actor Marty McCann said: "Northern Ireland is developing a reputation as a world-class location for film-making. For me it's still home and to be able to do what I love in the place that I love is extra special. The Belfast Film Festival's showcasing of a number of premieres, including Killing Bono, is testament to the respect which the Festival is accorded in the industry".
Discussing the programme in more detail, the Festival's Chair, Brian Henry Martin commented: "Many genres are covered including documentaries, political dramas, classics and all-time favourites such as The Quiet Man, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Casablanca, the saying that "there is something here for everyone" couldn't be more apt!"
