Fermanagh Film Club in conjunction with Film Hub NI are hosting ‘Extra Ordinary’ on Wednesday 6th November 2019 at 8pm in Waterways Ireland, Enniskillen.
A woman who has supernatural abilities must save a possessed girl. Though driving instructor Rose has a love-hate relationship with her abilities, she decides to help Martin and his daughter Sarah.
Fermanagh Film Club in conjunction with Film Hub NI are hosting GAZA on Wednesday 4th December 2019 at 8pm in Waterways Ireland, Enniskillen.
GAZA, which is predominantly filmed in the Arabic language, is a beautiful and poignant documentary made from inside the Gaza strip and brings the audience into a unique place beyond the reach of TV news reports to reveal the humanity within a world rich with eloquent and resilient characters. The film is a cinematic portrait of a people attempting to lead meaningful lives against the rubble of perennial conflict. This intimate film depicts people plagued by conflict but not defined by it, and journeys through a physically broken and battered landscape, leaving its diverse cast of real characters speak for themselves.
Gaza was produced by Brendan J. Byrne (No Stone Unturned, Bobby Sands: 66 Days) for Fine Point Films, along with Garry Keane and Andrew McConnell for Real Films and Paul Cadieux (P.S. Jerusalem, The Settlers). It was funded by Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland, Filmoption International, ZDF/ARTE with support from Northern Ireland Screen.
For Cinema Day NI 2019 Fermanagh Film Club is hosting ‘Float Like a Butterfly’ in conjunction with Film Hub NI.
In a gender-reversal of classic film Billy Elliot, 15-year-old Frances has to fight for the right to fight back.
Raised in roadside camps in rural Ireland, Frances wants to champion her people inside the boxing ring and out, like her idol Muhammad Ali. But society is determined to break her spirit and destroy her way of life. And her father, once her greatest ally, is too defeated himself to imagine any better for his daughter. But Frances was not born to be broken. In the mother of all fights, she must dig deep to find in herself the Champion her father once knew her to be.
This event is part of Cinema Day, an initiative by Film Hub NI to celebrate cinema and film across Northern Ireland. All details can be found at http://www.filmhubni.org/projects/cinema-day-19/

Terry Loane’s period comedy-drama Jonjo and Mickybo (also released under the title Mickybo and Me) unravels in Belfast, Ireland circa 1970, at the outset of the violence that began to erupt at that time and plagued the country for decades. It observes the allegorical friendship that develops between two young boys living on radically opposed sides of the city: Micky Boyle (nicknamed Mickybo and played by John Joe McNeill) – a consummate troublemaker and one child of many in a large Catholic family – and Johnjo (Niall Wright), an only child torn between the attentions of his mother and his maritally unfaithful father. The two boys hatch a plot to swipe a gun and go on the lam to Australia, as outlaws ala Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.

Fermanagh Film Club are excited to present the premiere screening of ‘Sgt Collins RIC,’ a short film produced and filmed by Fermanagh locals Dave McCann and Ronan McGrade. Based on the first Bloody Sunday, the film will tell the story of the attack on the RIC Barracks in Fivemiletown. Catherine Scott from the museum will give a short background talk followed by a Q&A session.
It’s the summer of 1983, and precocious 17-year-old Elio Perlman is spending the days with his family at their 17th-century villa in Lombardy, Italy. He soon meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student who’s working as an intern for Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of their surroundings, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
