The Cinemagic CineSeekers Film Club is a monthly film event for young people. Based in QFT, the club's ethos is central to Cinemagic's ethos to promote and celebrate a diverse and varied range of international children's films.

By providing our young audience with a regular outlet for world cinema, our aim is to develop and nurture a broader appreciation, understanding and love of film; as well as celebrating the stories, peoples and cultures from around the globe. The first film is Giovanni's Island which has received widespread critical acclaim.

Giovanni's Island (PG) : Japanese Anime directed by MIZUHO NISHIKUBO
In the aftermath of the most devastating conflict mankind had ever experienced, the tiny island of Shikotan became part of the Sakhalin Oblast... and on this forgotten border in a remote corner of the world, friendship among children from two different countries timidly blossomed, striving to overcome language barriers and the waves of history. Based on true events.

The film screens from 3.00pm-4.45pm in Queen's Film Theatre Belfast on Saturday 28th March. To purchase tickets priced at £4.00 click here
