Just a few days til the opening of Belfast Film Festival - got my tickets for the opening film - ROAD - sitting in front of me. There's loads of great films this year all over the city. 
You can also join me for two 'In Conversation' events... Next Saturday (29th) I'm at QFT with British cinema veteran script supervisor/continuity woman Renee Glynne for a very special chat. http://belfastfilmfestival.org/films/renee-glynne-conversation
Then the following Saturday (5th April), I'll be hosting a special discussion with local comic book legend, and Game of Thrones storyboard artist William Simpson. http://belfastfilmfestival.org/films/art-fantasy-sci-fi-william-simpson
Book your tickets for these and all the other events at www.belfastfilmfestival.org

A short audio feature on cinema, inspired by the upcoming Belfast Film Festival.
Thanks to Aidan Largey, Stephen Hackett, Susan Picken and Noel Spence for their time! 
I may work on a longer cut - there's a lot of good material left over!
