Bafta nomination for Good Vibrations a reel boost
Those who have seen Good Vibrations, the film about the birth of punk in Belfast, have hailed it as possibly the best film ever made in Northern Ireland.
That opinion has won greater credence by its nomination for a Bafta, the British Oscars. In these cold, dark post-Christmas days you could do worse than get your hands on a DVD of the film and settle in for a good night's viewing. It is a movie that makes one proud to be from Northern Ireland and we hope that it gains an award next month. Another film shot here, Philomena, is also up for a number of awards, giving a further positive boost to our reputation as a good place to make movies.
