Derry gets ready for its close-up

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

The 33rd Celtic Me­dia Fes­ti­val opens in Derry this week with a screen­ing of a movie on the city en­ti­tled Derry on Screen.

The picture fea­tures footage of Derry’s res­i­dents drawn from The Nerve Cen­tre’s North West Dig­i­tal Film Ar­chive. Bron­agh Gal­lagher, a proud daugh­ter of the Foyle, will be on hand to present the film.

“It’s such an ex­cit­ing time for Derry in the lead up to the City of Cul­ture year in 2013,” the ac­tor and singer com­mented.

“Our city’s peo­ple are rightly renowned for their spirit and creativ­ity and this film will be a tremen­dous tes­ta­ment to them. It’s also a fan­tas­tic legacy for the Celtic Me­dia Fes­ti­val to be­queath the city.”

The fes­ti­val runs from April 18th to April 20th. celtic­me­di­afes­ti­val.co.uk.
