Street between 12pm - 2pm on the first four Thursdays in March. Not only can
you watch some of our stunning footage of Belfast (recently digitised as part
of the BFI’s Unlocking
Film Heritage project), you can also venture into the world of video art from
artists like Phil

Cushnahan. The films are short and designed to offer a quick break from the madness of the everyday rush. Look out for the sign saying 'City as a Gallery' and hop aboard.
The Nomadic Screenings are co-ordinated by Jane Butler. You can visit their
