It’s an honour to be patron of Cinemagic Worldwide. It’s amazing to see how Cinemagic impacts on individuals and communities on so many levels; Educationally, socially and vocationally. We’ve engaged directly with half a million young people over the last 20 years. What started as a children’s film festival, has blossomed into an outlet for creativity and an inlet for the creative industries, touching young people from all backgrounds in a very unique and inspiring way, transforming countless lives along the way. To have taken the Cinemagic experience from Belfast, to Dublin, to the UK, to France and then across the Atlantic and to have had so much success there, tells you something about the Cinemagic brand and its enormous global appeal and potential.
