Belfast Film Festival presents the Irish Premiere of 'Belfast', the latest film from acclaimed director Kenneth Branagh, and now the Toronto International Film Festival People’s Choice Award winner, at the Waterfront Hall, 04 November 2021.
The award-winning film is set during the tumult of late-1960s Northern Ireland, the film follows young Buddy (Jude Hill) as he navigates a landscape of working-class struggle, sweeping cultural changes, and sectarian violence. Buddy dreams of a glamorous future that will whisk him far from the Troubles, but, in the meantime, he finds consolation in his charismatic Pa (Jamie Dornan) and Ma (Caitríona Balfe), and his spry, tale-spinning grandparents (Ciarán Hinds and Judi Dench).
The special event opens the 21st Belfast Film Festival on the 4th November and will be introduced by Branagh himself and attended by some of the film’s A-list cast in what will be a glittering homecoming night for the film.
There will be a post-screening Q&A with Kenneth Branagh and the Cast of the film.
This event is presented in partnership with Universal and Northern Ireland Screen.
