September 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments


Yes folks, its fast approaching and what an action packed weekend the organisers have lined up for you with the very best in indie cinema, special guests, Star Wars, zombies, world premieres and more!

Guests…. ALBERT PYUN – The prolific director attends his very first YFIFF along with producing partner and writer, Cynthia Curnan.

Albert is the force behind action classics such as Van Damme’s CYBORG, the original CAPTAIN AMERICA, sci-fi actioneer NEMESIS, and many many more. We are pleased to announce the European premiere of Albert’s latest film ROAD TO HELL – a sequel to the 80’s classic STREETS OF FIRE from Walter Hill (The Warriors) followed by a Q&A on it.

Albert and Cynthia will also be delivering a double bill of LIVE commentary for the classics CAPTAIN AMERICA and NEMESIS on the Saturday night along with our returning guest MIKE LEEDER. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to hear how it was all done, straight from the horses mouth.

Returning guest MIKE LEEDER helped launch the very first YFIFF in 2009 and we are very pleased to have him back once again. Mike’s work in the industry over the past 20 years as casting director, producer, actor and more will be put to use in a number of workshops to help you gain more knowledge and a better chance of gaining the role you want.

FILMS… Be sure to check out our full schedule at below for a full list of movies, times and more.

We have a vast collection from home and beyond playing all weekend and 10 awards to hand out afterwards along with a copy of FX package HIT FILM sponsored by Hit Film themselves.

As usual, we close the festival with the premiere of our very own new film – this year, with two, ONUS and SPLASH AREA which have a red carpet World Premiere on the Sunday evening. Check out the website for more details and tickets!

EVENTS… Must see events drown the weekend, with the European premiere of Albert’s latest film ROAD TO HELL on Friday evening. Saturday morning sees a host of events with the EMERALD GARRISON on hand in full Star Wars gear, SFX display and Zombie Workshop from the team behind SPLASH AREA.

Local sci-fi author OWEN QUINN will be on hand for a signing of his books, and at noon the ever-growing charity Zombie Walk returns at the gates of Stormont. Sunday sees films and workshops galore, with the YFIFF Award Ceremony kicking off before the world premieres of our very own new films.

TICKETS… There is a couple of ways you can enjoy the weekend. A day ticket at £12 each day… Or if you can’t make the weekend and just our premieres, you can purchase these for just £10… but I would recommend you take advantage of our massive online discount for the FULL WEEKEND ticket – now half price at just £15. That’s only £5 a day for unlimited entertainment!! Or you can pay £30 at the door for it.

All tickets can be purchased here – Either way… You should be there!! An action packed weekend not to be missed!!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
