Belfast film role for Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody
A bit of Hollywood came to Belfast yesterday.
Made in Belfast, a feature film about a Belfast man who returns to the city after eight years of self-imposed exile, was being filmed in the city centre yesterday.
The crew hope to have shooting on the micro-budget feature film completed in a fortnight.
The romantic comedy features Jack, a writer from Belfast, returning home after eight years on the continent.
It took just five days for Paul Kennedy, an actor and director from west Belfast, to write the first draft of the film. And he enlisted a cast and crew of 40.
“We shot in McHugh’s (bar in Belfast) and Gary Lightbody made his acting debut as the barman,” said Kennedy.
