Terence Davies is the recipient of the Belfast Film Festival Outstanding Contribution to Cinema Award.

He was in conversation with Belfast Film Festival about his life, work and influences in a special event in the Queen Film Theatre.

Arguably the greatest living British filmmaker, Terence Davies (b. 1945) is a member of the distinctive generation of Bristish Film Institute-nurtured directors whose ranks notably include Derek Jarman, Sally Potter and Peter Greenaway. Davies first established himself with three celebrated shorts, known collectively as ‘The Terence Davies Trilogy’. Like his trilogy, subsequent features ‘Distant Voices, Still Lives’ and ‘The Long Day Closes’ are set in postwar England.
