Cinemagic has launched its annual call for 25 young film enthusiasts to take on the role of ‘film consultants’ and help select a series of films for this year’s Coca-Cola Cinemagic International Film & Television Festival for Young People that takes place in Belfast from 16th November- 2nd December.

Over the course of a three day workshop in Belfast, beginning on Monday 25th July, the Cinemagic young consultants will work with the Cinemagic team to help steer the choice of films for the 21st Anniversary Festival, as they watch and critique films from around the globe!

If you are a budding film critic (aged between 10 and 18 years old) who would enjoy the opportunity to spend three days (10.00am-3.00pm) from Monday 25th July- Wednesday 27th July (inc) working with Cinemagic, this is a fantastic opportunity to meet other likeminded young people and have fun deciding the content of the largest film festival for young people in the UK and Ireland.


Applicants aged 10-18 with a keen interest in film and the enthusiasm to work within a group should apply to be considered for a place by writing/emailing a short letter telling Cinemagic why they would like to be a Cinemagic Young Film Consultant and include a film review.

This information, along with their name, address, age, telephone number, email address and name/address of their school should be sent to, Claire Shaw, Cinemagic, Young Consultants Programme, 49 Botanic Avenue, Belfast, BT7 1JL or emailed to

All applications should be received no later than 16th July.
