FREE screenings at The Blue Moon Film Festival
Belfast’s brand new outdoor pop up film festival!
Following NCC's (Newcastle Community Cinema) hosting of a memorable grindcore double bill at Belfast Culture Night last year, the shadowy film anoraks of NCC in Co Down have been drafted in by the canny folks at the Dark Horse to curate another memorable weekend mix of cult movies, shorts, documentaries and festival favourites from around the world.
A clever melting pot of movie madness over 3 nights sees the NCC team screening 2 Northern Ireland premieres from 3-5 August at The Dark Horse car park, Commercial Court in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter.
The festival kicks off with the Irish Premiere of indie documentary Mission to Lars on Friday 3rd August. Mission to Lars is a road movie surrounding the Spicer family’s mission to unite their mentally disabled brother with his idol, Mettalica’s drummer Lars Ulrich. Following the screening there will be a Q&A with producer and life style journalist Kate Spicer who along with her brother Tom feature in the documentary. The screening will also be attended by Mencap Northern Ireland for which all the films proceeds will be donated.
Saturday 4th August sees an exclusive screening of new cult comedy Some Guy Who Kills People, executively produced by the original horror comedy don John Landis. Expect splatter and laughs aplenty in this quirky tale of serial killers and ice cream. With a twist.
Rounding off the festival on Sunday 5th August is an undisputed cult classic, and also one of the darkest movies ever committed to celluloid -, from 1986, a rare opportunity to experience David Lynch’s subversive and seminal head melter Blue Velvet.
Tickets are FREE to the public for this event and available through the NCC website at www.newcastlecinema.org
