The Belfast Film Festival is proud to support the medium of short film, and this annual competition is made up of early-to-mid career and established filmmakers from the island of Ireland. Our festival selection team has the difficult task of choosing from a high number of submissions that grows in both number and quality every year.
Programme 1 Includes:
Still Up There – Joe Loftus
An astronaut wakes up in outer space, struggling to piece together how he got there. Bold animated visuals and unsettling sound design bring his internal monologue to life.
Wednesday’s Child – Laura O’Shea
Marie faces her first day on the job as a Social Care worker. Despite her optimism, a house call to a family in crisis quickly brings her back to reality.
Napoleon’s Nose – Joanna McClurg
This refreshing coming-of-age story follows young carer Jenny as she balances her work life with her social life and the unavoidable realities of growing up. This authentic snapshot of life as a young person in contemporary Belfast is keenly observed by writer/director Joanna McClurg, anchored by a stunning smartphone sequence capturing a messy night out.
You’re Not Home – Derek Ugochukwu
When an ominous mould appears in their room, two African brothers seeking asylum are faced with a dark entity lurking within their Direct Provision centre. You’re Not Home is a vivid and terrifying depiction of systemic racism, disempowerment and exile.
