You can swing by the City as a Gallery Black Taxi on Castle 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 Hession and Laura 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 Black Taxi 12-2pm on the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th March.

Then look out for the Digital Film Archive’s West Belfast show reel at An Cultúrlann from the 4th-10th April.

These screenings are all part of ‘City as a Gallery’ a Belfast City Council project, which is being programmed and delivered by PLACE. They began in February when we worked with BHSCT Arts in Health and Catering Operations to screen films including this 1938 footage of the Royal Victoria Hospital in the Coffee Doc, Level 2 Outpatients, Royal Victoria Hospital.
