CINEMAGIC & QFT50 PRESENT:

Celtic mythology, magic and fantasy come together in a riot of colour and detail, in this enchanting Oscar-nominated animation about the power of imagination and faith to carry humanity through dark times.

At its heart is The Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript created more than a millennium ago in a remote Irish abbey. With the Viking hordes approaching, the monks of Kells are forced to turn their attention from transcribing manuscripts to building barricades. The future of the precious book is in jeopardy, and it falls to young Brendan, a twelve-year-old novice monk, to face his deepest fears and save the day…

Filled with vivid scenes of action and adventure, delicate dream-like sequences, and tonnes of creativity, this hand-drawn production will captivate and inspire young and old alike.

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.
