Belfast Film Festival and Movie House Cinemas will host the UK and Ireland premiere of The Journey on 4th May. Tickets are on sale now for this special event and the two leading actors, Timothy Spall and Colm Meaney, will join director Nick Hamm for a Q and A session with the audience following the screening.

The Journey is a dramatisation of the events preceding the historic 2006 St. Andrews Agreement – a fictional account of the negotiations between the two political adversaries that transpired, not in some hallowed hall but, rather, in a minivan traversing the Scottish countryside.

The charismatic Meaney (Martin McGuinness) and Spall (Ian Paisley) embody these two contentious political figures as real live people, with all their tics and foibles – and what’s more, they show us how these mortal enemies came to see each other’s human sides.

Tickets for The Journey at the Movie House, Dublin Road are on sale at or by phoning Visit Belfast on (028) 9024 6609.
