Wow, it’s been an amazing start to the 22nd Belfast Film Festival!

The excitement kicked off last night with the star-studded world premiere of Ballywalter starring Patrick Kielty in his acting debut. Patrick was joined on the red carpet by Ballywalter director Prasanna Puwanajarah and East Belfast’s Stacey Gregg who wrote the film, along with members of the cast and crew.

The gala event was hosted by Tara Lynne O’Neill, star of Derry Girls, and the screening was followed by a Q&A with the producer, screenwriter and director.
