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.
That is typical of the imagination which runs throughout the Festival. The range of films on offer is staggering but that is only part of the programme with discussions on all aspects of bringing movies to the silver screen. From the movie buff to the occasional fan, this festival has something for us. All it needs is your support, so get booking.
