April is nearly upon us which gets the thumbs up from most of us but a bit of a need to brace oneself in the cinema exhibition sector. As the days get longer and warmer don’t forget the best place to be is in a dark cinema watching an incredible film, too much sun can be very ageing.
Making Waves Film Festival is Portsmouth’s annual film festival and short film competition celebrating innovative and bold filmmaking that inspires audiences. Now in its tenth year, Making Waves aims to develop local talent and new filmmakers whilst building national and international links.
No6 is delighted to be a partner in this endeavour and presents a number of events and screenings hand in glove with Making Waves.
At 6.00pm on 31st March (Belfast) and 7th April (River) pre main feature we will be showing two sets of shorts. Your ticket price includes shorts and the main feature: come for part or all of the event.
Thursday 21st April we will be screening Ali and Ava with a pre-screening Q&A with the film's composer Harry Escott. Music is a key part of this film so this will be a fascinating conversation.
On Friday 22nd April, Front Room presents Home, an evening of spoken word, film and performance. This is a fundraiser for Ukraine with all donations going to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
Saturday 23rd April we will be screening Homeward, a Ukrainian film which is more about the historic friction between Russia and Ukraine.
Even though CODA won the award for Best Picture at last night's Oscars, No6 has chosen to screen Belfast again on Thursday as it made its way straight to our hearts.
Friday evening is guaranteed to be quirky and fun with Renaldo and the Loaf making an appearance for the screening of 23rd Century Giants. Roy Hanney will be VJing (deejaying with video) RATL artwork and music in the bar from 6.00pm.
