CINEMAGIC & QFT50 PRESENT:

This Oscar-nominated follow up to The Secret of Kells is another gorgeous hand-drawn animation - indeed, it’s been hailed as one of the most blissfully beautiful films ever made!

It too is inspired by Celtic magic and folklore: this time by the ancient Irish legend of the Selkies, magical beings who live as seals in the water and as humans on land.

Ben and his sister Saoirse (who hasn’t once spoken even though she is six years old) live on a rocky island where seals bob up to watch their every move. When their father sends them off to live with their gruff granny in the city, the unhappy duo plan their return – and aided by a horde of ghostly but kind creatures, they face many adventures along their way. Will Saoirse discover the secret of their past and find her voice?

We are celebrating the beautifully drawn and bewitching animation feature films of Oscar nominated studio Cartoon Saloon, in partnership with the 2018 Cinemagic Festival.

We are delighted to welcome Cartoon Saloon’s Tomm Moore (Co-founder & Creative Director), Nora Twomey (Co-founder & Creative Director) and Paul Young (Co-founder & CEO) to Belfast to join us for this special celebration.

Part of 'Anim18: A Celebration of British Animation'. For activities and events across the UK in 2018 visit www. anim18.co.uk.

Led by Film Hub Wales and Chapter (Cardiff), working with the BFI Film Audience Network and with support of the BFI, awarding funds from The National Lottery.
