Editor's Viewpoint: Some reel talent
The Belfast Film Festival which starts today shows Northern Ireland at its best. In spite of all the historic problems and the current economic ones, the city can still put on a good show. The list of films on offer will challenge, educate and entertain in equal measures and also provide a showcase for the international standard talent the province produces.
And later next month Belfast's buzzing Catheral Quarter will host its own eclectic arts festival. Just where the organisers of all these events find the resources and energy to come up with innovative programmes year after year is a mystery but our culture is all the richer for it. Now let's go out and support them.
