BELFAST FILM FESTIVAL FEATURES “A PLACE CALLED ARDOYNE”
In a moment of total synchronicity, we learned today that the Belfast Film Festival is featuring our award-winning documentary “A Place Called Ardoyne” as part of their upcoming festival.The film was recently chosen out of 450,000 British films by the British Film Institute (BFI) to be restored and digitized as part of the British Film Heritage program. That restored version will be playing at the festival in April 16-25, 2015.
“A Place Called Ardoyne” will be running concurrently with my music video, “Ardoyne,” at its theatrical world premiere at the Tiburon International Film Festival in California – April 9-17th. The music video utilizes footage from the 1972 film, which won the 1973 Chicago Film Festival . “Ardoyne” opens the festival on Friday, March 10th at 10pm at the Tiburon Playhouse Theater.

I am very moved that a new generation of audiences will see my historical film. At the time it was made, the film was deemed controversial, but its message has stayed the same, namely, as one person says in the film, ‘We’ll never have peace until we all get together!”
