Arts on Film

Creativity on camera

Step inside the studios and minds of local artists and writers as the camera attempts to capture creativity for television. Witness progress and decline from what is believed to be the earliest surviving Northern Irish television play to last days of the Empire Theatre. Mesmerize yourself as the practised hands of skilled makers forge their creations before your eyes.
