Belfast Film Festival paired five local filmmakers with five community groups from the Belfast area, to make a 5-15 minute documentary.

The participants have worked across every aspect of the project, from locations, sound, archive, filming and post-production, gaining skills and confidence from their filmmakers.

Séan Murray - This short documentary explores the lives of first and second generation immigrants who now call Ireland their home. 

Michael McNulty & Belfast Friendship Group Belfast. A port city. Welcoming visitors for hundreds of years through the mouth of the River Farset. Is today any different? Travelled individuals share their thoughts on a historic city.

Lisa Keogh & VOYPIC My bedroom. In Nature. On a skateboard. Ayah, Martha, and Georgia reflect on their journeys through care and share the safe places they’ve found or created for themselves. 

Emily MacFarland & PPR/ANAKA Women’s Collective. Tracing memories of displacement, the meaning of home, present challenges around social housing and future aspirations for a new kind of neighbourhood.

Gillian Callan & young people from Short Strand who speak Irish. A short observational film about what it's like to be bilingual.
