Cinemagic 30: CinePunked present The Witches at Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast, 23 Oct 2019

CinePunked are delighted to be part of the line-up for this year’s 30th Cinemagic International Film and Television Festival for Young People, running between 1 October and 30 November, with a special screening of The Witches.

Rachael and Robert have long memories of participation in editions of the festival during the late 90s and early 2000s and are thrilled to be reaquainting themselves in this 30th birthday year.
They’re stepping back into their own past to present Nicolas Roeg’s version of Roald Dahl’s The Witches – a film that lingered long in the nightmares of many children in the 1990s.

CinePunked presents The Witches

Everybody knows that witches look like you and me. On the outside at least not every witch is ugly. But they all hate children…

Join CinePunked’s Robert JE Simpson and Dr Rachael Kelly for a very special Halloween screening of cult family classic The Witches. Based on Roald Dahl’s children’s novel and directed by the acclaimed Nicolas Roeg, it haunted the memories of many who saw it on its first run.

After the screening we’ll be hosting a discussion and live podcast recording looking at Dahl’s special brand of twisted tales, children’s horror and the legacy of the film. Audience participation encouraged.

*Please note you must be aged 15+ to attend this event / Total Duration: 2hrs 45mins
