Community Relations Council Media Grant Awards Film Launch

The Community Relations Council is delighted to host a launch event for two new films supported through its Media Grants Scheme.

The two 15-minute films have been produced by two emerging films makers Diana Cheung and Ross McClean respectively and aim to give an insight into the diversity of communities that call Northern Ireland their home. The event also includes input from Christine Morrow from Northern Ireland Screen and Martin McDonald Chairman of the Community Relations Council.

In partnership with Northern Ireland Screen, Diana Cheung’s film “Northern Chirish” is a short documentary film about the Chinese-Irish (Chirish) community from the perspective of the 2nd generation and explores the themes of culture and identity, sense of belonging, racism and immigration.

Ross McClean has produced a short film which follows the friendship of a group of young amateur boxers from distinct cultural backgrounds living in East Belfast. The film follows the young people as they prepare for an upcoming fight and gives witness to how sport can break down cultural differences and barriers.

The event will give the opportunity to see the completed films, to hear from the film makers and for a short Q&A session about the issues their films give voice to.

Starting at 10am and finishing with lunch, this is an exciting event to showcase the two film makers’ work.
