Cinemagic is an award-winning Belfast-based film charity and is the leading film and television festival designed for and by young people in the UK and Ireland. We love the magic of film and television and recognise its power to educate, motivate and inspire young people. Our patrons include Liam Neeson, Pierce Brosnan, Saoirse Ronan, Julian Fellowes, Dermot O'Leary, Colin Farell, Saoirse-Monica Jackson and Hayley Mills.


****In light of the Coronavirus and to adopt protection measures where groups of people are gathering, Cinemagic is cancelling the remainder of our March ON THE PULSE events until further notice. Tickets for ON THE PULSE EVENTS will be refunded at the point of sale or transferred to new dates in due course at the choice of the customer. We are offering and planning online film viewing as an alternative to some of the events and the news section of the website and social media will be updated regularly.

Our May Cinemagic Dublin Festival will not take place, but we plan to deliver the Dublin Public Programme in the Summer months and the Dublin Education Programme in November.

The 31st Cinemagic Film and Television Festival in Belfast will take place from 28 September to 31 October 2020

We look forward to delivering our events in person in the not too distant future and we will keep you updated on our plans.

Grace and Goliath DVD

£10.99 (+ £3.99 Shipping)

Grace and Goliath will scoop you up in its mighty arms and carry you on an emotional but hugely enjoyable roller coaster! A Hollywood big shot, (and he knows it!) Josh Jenkins sweeps into Belfast to make a movie, but before long his world crashes and he loses everything. Lily (a hotel cleaner) invites him to stay with her family and gradually the people of this ‘strange’ city touch his heart, forever. A powerful story of how one man’s GOLIATH ego is brought down by one single blow...of GRACE!

Dir: Tony Mitchell – UK – 2018 – 90 mins – Cert: PG – in English
