It may not be Cannes but Belfast Film Festival produces a consistently high quality programme with just enough quirks to heighten interest among fans.

 In the past it has staged Moby Dick in the setting of the Sinclair Seamen's Church in the docklands. This year, Cool Hand Luke will be screened in Crumlin Road jail and last night La Triviata showed at St Anne's Cathedral.

From the movie buff to the occasional fan, this festival has something for us. All it needs is your support, so get booking.
