Search is on for Cinemagic team

By Staff Reporter

T HE annual call for young movie fans to help select this year’s programme for the Cinemagic International Film and Television Festival has been made. Cinemagic, who are based in South Belfast, are seeking 25 young film enthusiasts to become ‘film consultants’ for the festival, which takes place later this year.

The chosen crew will screen potential film entries from across the globe, offering their thoughts and criticisms, as they put together the line-up of movie offerings.

Two sets of critics are required to choose movies for the younger children’s selection – kids aged 4-11, and for older fans aged 12-25.

For two days next month the consultants will work to select the line-up during workshop meetings, and to apply to become one, entrants must explain to Cinemagic via e-mail or by writing as to why they should be picked, and also include a short personal movie review.

Cinemagic’s Chris Shaw said: “We are dedicated to providing new and exciting opportunities for young people with all interests in film, whether they want to enjoy new films or take their interest further and explore career options in the film industry.

“The young film consultants will have the opportunity to watch and review international films guided by the Cinemagic team and there will be lots of opportunities for discussion and debate.”

The deadline for entries is July 11, with the workshops being held on July 16/17 for the younger age group, and on July 23/24 for the older group.

Entries should be sent to Cinemagic, Young Consultants Programme, 49 Botanic Avenue, Belfast, BT7 1JL or emailed to claire@cinemagic.org.uk.
