Cinemagic Dublin ’21

This event has ended

Online, Thursday 22nd July - Wednesday 25th August

The 13th edition of Cinemagic Dublin will return this July and August with a feast of virtual film opportunities for young audiences to enjoy. Highlights include World Cinema presented on the Cinemagic Festival Player, Career Crafts Q&A sessions, Film Juries, Creativity Corner Tutorials, the Young Consultants workshops, Film Boot Camp, and the Cinemagic Young Filmmaker Competition.

Considering the current environment in relation to Covid-19, the festival team have pulled out the stops to offer a rich and varied online programme, but a special back to cinema day is being planned at the end of August (in line with government guidelines) to celebrate the big screen experience!

The Career Crafts programme is designed to introduce young people to the many different fields, roles and jobs in film and television through bite-size Q&As with industry professionals. The all-Irish guest line-up taking part in the Q&As are actors India Mullan, Hazel Doupe, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, and Aisling Franciosi; Radio and TV Presenter Laura Whitmore; TV Presenter and Reporter Zainab Boladale; Sky Sports Presenter, Paul Gilmour; Writer and Director Mary McGuckian; and Director Lorcan Finnegan.

A wealth of international cinema will be released fortnightly, to rent on the new Cinemagic Festival Player, which will present movies for children, teenagers and young adults. Eighteen feature films focus on stories of youth portrayed in live-action dramas and animations that are heart-warming, thought-provoking and inspiring. Join Kiwi & Strit (Irish Premiere) on a series of hilarious adventures as they find themselves in trouble over and over again; bold and exciting youth drama The Club of Ugly Children (Irish Premiere) features slick production design and gutsy performances; and celebrating sisterhood, bravery, plus finding your own inner strength, Sisters: The Summer We Found Our Superpowers is a magically sweet film the whole family can enjoy.
