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/
With the kind support of NI Film Hub we will be hosting the film ‘Of Love & Law’ in addition to our scheduled Spring programme on Wednesday 17th April at 8pm in Fermanagh House, Enniskillen. Admission will be £5 on the door or free entry to Film Club members.

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.
