NI Preview of ‘Song of the Sea’ announced for July CineSeekers Film Club

Posted on 11th June 2015 | Cinemagic News

The July CineSeekers Film Club movie is the Northern Ireland preview of the highly acclaimed, Oscar-nominated animation ‘Song of The Sea’, taking place on Saturday 4th July at Queen’s Film Theatre, Belfast.

Irish animator Tomm Moore follows his celebrated feature debut, The Secret of Kells, with another ravishing fantasy based on Irish folklore. Song of the Sea tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse - the last Seal-child - who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. The film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land.

Song of The Sea features the voices of Brendan Gleeson, Fionnula Flanagan, David Rawle, Lisa Hannigan, Pat Shortt and Jon Kenny. Music is by composer Bruno Coulais and Irish band Kíla, both of whom previously collaborated on The Secret of Kells.

The CineSeekers Film Club is a monthly film event for young people. Based in QFT, the club's ethos is 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, the 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 film (Cert PG) screens from 4.00pm-5.30pm in Queen's Film Theatre Belfast on Saturday 4th July. To purchase tickets priced at £4.00 visit www.queensfilmtheatre.com

The film is in English Language

With thanks to Element Pictures, Studio Canal  and Cartoon Saloon for this screening.
