The sounds of Belfast Music Week with MTV will be echoing throughout the concert halls, clubs – and now cinemas – of the city too, as QFT presents Mix Tape, an eclectic selection of sounds on screen from Sunday 30 October to Saturday 5 November.
We press ‘play’ on QFT Mix Tape on Sunday 30 October with The Story of Lover’s Rock, which explores the origins of the genre also known as ‘romantic reggae’ which developed in Britain in the late ’70s and ’80s against a backdrop of riots and racial tension. Music industry legend Terri Hooley will be raiding his DJ box for a special reggae set before the film in the Jameson Bar at QFT, from 4pm.
On Monday 31 October, QFT pays tribute to the unsung heroes of the indie record shop with a double bill featuring the fantastic new documentary Sound It Out and the big screen adaptation of the Nick Hornby classic High Fidelity. Jeff Doherty (Dragon Records) will be Djing in the Jameson Bar at QFT before and after the screening of Sound it Out.
Delivering a raw, energetic performance in front of a crowd who are clearly loving the show, The Rolling Stones: Some Girls, Live in Texas (Tuesday 1 November) is a never-before-seen concert movie which captures this world famous band at the height of their musical career.
Capturing the uniquely powerful live experience of Iceland’s Sigur Rós on film is no mean feat, but then again Inni (Saturday 5 November) is a concert film like no other. Directed by Arcade Fire collaborator Vincent Morriset, the film offers an intimate, emotionally charged and cinematic portrait of these four extraordinary musicians.
Tickets for all QFT Mix Tape screenings are £6 full price, £5 concessions and £4 students, children and QFT Film Card holders. For further information and online booking, please visit www.queensfilmtheatre.com
