SHADOWS OF THE GREAT WAR: WORLD WAR ONE ON FILM

PRESENTED BY QFT AND FILM HUB NI WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND
To mark the Centenary of World War One, we presented this programme of films, talks and events, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund from November 2014 - March 2015.

Film was in its infancy when the Great War broke out – however it too played its part in the war effort, recording and documenting the events of the conflict, relaying news back to those on the home front and keeping the population at home informed, as well as entertained. Running over six months at selected venues across Northern Ireland, our season of films, talks and events  explored how the events and the legacy of the Great War has been depicted on film; from screenings of classic films through to presentations of rare archive material.
