. And in recognition of the growing film production sector in Northern Ireland, this year the festival has introduced a new section presenting a series of locally made feature and medium-length films, most of which were produced on micro-budgets and developed by the filmmakers with their own money and in their own time. 

The festival is funded by Northern Ireland Screen, Department for Culture, Arts & Leisure (DCAL), the British Film Institute and Belfast City Council, and is supported by Europa Belfast.

Richard Williams, CEO, Northern Ireland Screen, said, “Northern Ireland Screen seeks to provide the people of Northern Ireland with the opportunity to see as wide a range of films as possible, including those made by the wealth of home-grown creative talent. Through our continued support from DCAL for Belfast Film Festival, we can help achieve this goal and make a significant contribution to film culture, education and training, and at the same time respond to the department’s imperative of promoting equality, targeting poverty and social exclusion.”
