August 22nd, 2013 by Big Phil Comments

Yes my fellow Nerds and Nerdettes, the 5th Annual Yellow Fever Film Festival will be taking place at the Dublin Road Movie House, Belfast from 6th – 8th September and it shaping up to an amazing event.

Hosted by George Clarke, Belfast’s most successful independent film maker, The Yellow Fever Film Festival showcases a number of short and feature length films, including screenings of documentaries and also a classic film, and this year has some great additions.

With over 20 films being shown in one weekend, some of which will be followed by a live Q&A session with the filmmakers themselves, this is a film festival complete with an award ceremony on the Sunday Evening.

Highlights of this years festival include a workshop taking place in SFX and Make-Up Workshop which will be held at The Holiday Inn, Belfast. Another main highlight of this festival is a special screening of the 1922 classic Nosferatu on the big screen with live score by local music legend Paul McMordie and friends.

With a red carpet Gala Dinner on Sunday Evening culminating in the awards ceremony, The Yellow Fever Film Festival really is the premier film festival in Ireland for independent film makers.

So if you are into films and especially those that are not mainstream multiplexes, get yourself down to The Yellow Fever Film Festival for a weekend of diversity and who knows, you may even met a few of the filmmakers themselves.
