The 30th Anniversary Cinemagic Festival has unveiled over 30 days of unmissable opportunities for young audiences in Belfast and across Northern Ireland.
The 2019 Cinemagic Belfast Festival line-up includes Oscar-nominated Irish actress Saoirse Ronan and legendary actress Hayley Mills.
Festival goers will have the chance to participate in an extensive Film Education programme, industry masterclasses, a ‘Talking Pictures’ strand with screenings and filmmaker Q&As, the Cinemagic Young Filmmaker Weekend and Film Jury panels for young film critics.
The programme features over 100 public films and events, 30 industry workshops and masterclasses and 75 film education workshops. In the run-up to the festival Cinemagic welcomes acclaimed actor Tchéky Karyo, to present two films at Queen’s Film Theatre, including the first film ever screened at Cinemagic, 30 years ago, Vincent and Me.
