Cinema Day: Young Film Programmers- Good Vibrations
28 August 2017 18:30 » 28 August 2017 21:15
The spirit of punk will be brought to the big screen this Bank Holiday Monday as Nerve Centre's Young Film Programmers project launches with Good Vibrations. Live music by Derry trio Lost Avenue following the screening.
Good Vibrations follows the life of local music legend Terri Hooley, who helped bring punk to the masses in the 1970s through his record store and label, and was instrumental in the careers of The Undertones, Rudi and others.
Written by Colin Carberry and Glenn Patterson, who received a BAFTA nomination for Outstanding Debut, the film stars Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones) as the 'Godfather of Punk' alongside Jodie Whittaker, recently announced to be taking over from Peter Capaldi in BBC's Doctor Who.
Typical of punk music's do-it-yourself ethos, the screening and live performance have been planned and promoted entirely by a group of 16-24 year old film enthusiasts. The Young Film Programmers are responsible for all aspects of the event, from grassroots marketing to managing everything on the night.
Cinema Day is an initiative presented by Film Hub NI (part of the BFI Film Audience Network) and supported by Northern Ireland Screen.
