Belfast International Arts Festival 2020

Belfast International Arts Festival returns for its 58th edition this October with a programme of inspirational events that seeks to respond creatively to the current pandemic. We continue our long running partnership with the festival with two screenings in the cinema and a QFT Player exclusive.

QFT Player: Route 66

As the 2020 US presidential election approaches, join us as we journey back to '80s America and a film that has a strikingly renewed resonance today. John T. Davis' Route 66 will be free to watch on QFT Player from Fri 16 to Sun 18 Oct as part of the Belfast International Arts Festival.
16 October 2020 until 18 October 2020

Asunder tells the story of what happened to an English town during the First World War, with almost all of its men fighting abroad and its women and children left behind. The North East was in the front line, thanks to its shipyards and munitions factories.
