Arts Centres to host screenings of NI drama ‘Nowhere Special’

Screenings of a heartfelt drama filmed and set in Northern Ireland are set to take place in Limavady and Portstewart.

The opportunity to watch ‘Nowhere Special’ is part of the Film Hub NI Collective programme which aims to bring local films to local places.

Tickets are available now for the screenings which will take place in Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre on Thursday 11th November at 7pm and Flowerfield Arts Centre on Thursday 9th December at 7pm.

Nowhere Special, written and directed by award winning Italian filmmaker Uberto Pasolini, stars James Norton as a single father and it introduces young actor Daniel Lamont from Ballymena as Michael, his son.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens, Richard Holmes, said: “We are delighted that Film Hub NI is bringing ‘Nowhere Special’ to both of our Arts Centres during November and December, offering film fans in the Borough a chance to enjoy this special film on a cinema screen here.

“It’s a great endorsement for these fantastic local facilities – if you’ve never been before then please consider booking a ticket for a big screen experience with a difference.”

Sara Gunn-Smith, Marketing and Audiences Officer for Film Hub NI says: “Film Hub NI is delighted to be able to bring this original and beautiful film to 11 venues across Northern Ireland for audiences to enjoy.  With so many brilliant community cinemas signed up for the tour, it is evident that the appetite for independent film is alive and well and that film lovers cannot wait to return to the cinema. Audiences can look forward to seeing the film, along with some special guests that will join us on a few dates.”

Uberto Pasolini, Director, Nowhere Special said: “Filming Nowhere Special in Northern Ireland was one of the highlights of my 35 years of filmmaking. The quality of the crew, the brilliance of the Northern Irish actors, the welcome we received everywhere during our shoot, and of course the amazing talents of Daniel and James enabled us to achieve what on paper appeared impossible, an honest yet moving portrait of a very special relationship, a love story between a young father and his very small boy growing through the most difficult circumstances. It is with great pride that we share our journey with your audiences.”

FHNI is part of the BFI Film Audience Network, a UK wide project to ensure that the greatest choice of film is available to diverse audiences across Northern Ireland. The initiative is supported through National Lottery funding, distributed by the British Film Institute.

Tickets cost £5 and are available to purchase from the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre Box Office on 028 7776 0650 or Flowerfield Arts Centre Box Office on 028 7083 1400.
