The 31st Cinemagic International Film & Television Festival for Young People

Date: 1 Oct - 31 Oct

Cinemagic, one of the flagship festivals in Belfast, returns with a ‘lights, camera, action-packed’ festival film programme for young people, families, educators, students and young filmmakers.

Highlights include:

  • some of the best of world cinema
  • film previews and premieres
  • talent lab and creativity corner masterclasses with film and television industry professionals
  • fun-filled family film events
  • annual 'CineSeekers' and 'CineFocus' film juries which offer participants a chance to review movies and choose the winners of the festival.

Celebrating future filmmakers from across the UK and Ireland, there’s an opportunity to view the latest productions made by young people in the annual Cinemagic Young Filmmaker Showcase.

The majority of the Cinemagic festival will be virtual with some socially-distanced events planned.
