Shelter NI Film Festival

As part of Homelessness Awareness Week events, Shelter NI in partnership with Belfast Film Festival will be hosting a 3-day film festival.

Every day across Northern Ireland 50 families and individuals present as homeless. It doesn’t have to be this way.

We invite you, your friends, colleagues and family to join us and help to combat homelessness and poor housing conditions by supporting us on the 6th-7th-8th December 2018 at the Bean Bag Cinema, doors at 7pm.

The Homelessness Awareness Week (HAW) is an annual week of social, educational and awareness raising events organised across the country to highlight the issue of homelessness, and to mark the continued efforts of organisations, staff, and service users working in the sector.

Shelter NI Film Festival is a great platform to demystify homelessness and share with the general public some local facts about homelessness in Northern Ireland.

All the proceeds raised in this event will help us to continue to provide housing services and advice throughout GABLE and SLATE projects which last year helped approximately 550 people.
During these 3-day Film Festival we will be screening the following films:
