The health and safety of Belfast Film Festival and Docs Ireland audiences, staff and volunteers is always a priority for us. We have in place a number of safety measures to ensure that everyone stays safe.

These include online booking and cashless systems, temperature checks and sanitisers at all venues and greatly reduced numbers inside movie theatres to enable social distancing. Those attending our events must also wear face masks.

We would ask that anyone who plans to attend any of our ‘in person’ events’ is patient with staff and respectful of these measures, which are there to ensure everyone can enjoy the experience safely.

We have been monitoring the current COVID-19 situation and will continue to monitor developments and respond based on the recommendations of the Northern Ireland Chief Medical Officer, the UK and Irish governments, public health authorities and medical professionals.

Belfast Film Festival will continue to monitor the situation and post updates on this page.
