The Homeless Film Festival is the first festival of its kind that is dedicated to confronting and presenting homeless issues. This year the festival commenced on the 1st November until the 14th November with screenings in London, Manchester, Belfast, Liverpool, among others.
On Wednesday 5th November at the Queen’s Film Festival we attended a powerful film, The Unloved (2009). The directorial debut of Oscar nominated actor, Samantha Morton, also featuring a cast of well respected actors, Robert Carlyle, Susan Lynch, and Lauren Socha. We were part of the Q&A panel after the screening, hosted by The Homeless Film Festival, alongside Lauren Socha, representatives from the Council for the Homeless NI and Simon Community NI.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank The Homeless Film Festival for giving us the privilege of being part of this festival and help raise awareness of some of the homelessness issues affecting those in NI.
