The 25th Galway Film Fleadh (9 – 14 July, 2013)
Made in Belfast
Friday, 12th July
IMC Screen 6
Shot on a micro budget in 13 days, Paul Kennedy’s debut feature, Made in Belfast, was met with rave reviews when it premiered the Belfast Film Festival. The film is now set to screen at the Galway Film Fleadh, and stars Ciarán McMenamin (One Hundred Mornings), Owen McDonnell (Single-handed) and Stuart Graham (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). The film screens tomorrow, Friday, 12th July at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh.
Speaking to Film Ireland about Galway, Paul Kennedy said, ‘We’re extremely excited to screen Made in Belfast at this year’s Fleadh – this will be the first public screening of the film outside it’s home city, so, for us, it will be a great opportunity to gauge audience reaction. The Fleadh also provides us, and many other Irish filmmakers, with an invaluable platform to showcase our work to industry professionals from all over the world. To be given the opportunity to do so on this island is extremely rare, and vital to filmmakers like myself’.
Made in Belfast tells the story of Jack Kelly (Ciarán McMenamin) a successful novelist returning home to Belfast from self-imposed exile in Paris. His first novel, Made in Belfast, was met with critical and commercial success, the only problem, it did so by exposing the private lives of his friends and family that he must now reencounter. In a tale of loyalty and identity, Jack now has one weekend to put right the wrongs he committed all those years ago.
