Cinemagic’s Exciting New Feature Film ‘Grace and Goliath’ To Have World Premiere In Belfast

Kirsty Winter Blog

The world premiere of Cinemagic’s new feature film Grace and Goliath will take place on Tuesday 2 October 2018 at Odyssey Cinemas, Belfast, featuring a dazzling cameo appearance from MCE’s very own Managing Director, Paul McErlean.

The premiere will mark the official launch of this year’s Cinemagic Film Festival in Belfast, the largest film and television festival designed for, and by, young people in the UK and Ireland.  Both events are in association with Hagan Homes.

Grace and Goliath (Cert PG) is a family feel-good movie that will make you proud to come from Northern Ireland! The film will scoop you up in its mighty arms and carry you on an emotional but hugely enjoyable roller coaster.

A Hollywood big shot (and he knows it!), Josh Jenkins, sweeps into Belfast to make a movie, but before long his world crashes and he loses everything. Lily (the hotel cleaner) invites him to stay with her crazy family and gradually the people of this ‘strange’ city touch his heart, forever.

It’s a powerful story of how one man’s Goliath ego is brought down by one single blow…of Grace! With a superb home grown cast and cameos from Ciarán Hinds, Suranne Jones, Sally Lindsay and Bronagh Waugh, Grace and Goliath is set to be the family film of the year!

Canadian actor Emy Aneke (Supergirl) plays the role of the Californian A-list star, Josh Jenkin, who is stranded and penniless in Belfast after a movie goes wrong. His giant ego is challenged by a host of characters, including a little girl called Grace (Savanna Burney Keatings); her father Marcus (Ciarán McMenamin), mother Mel (Aoibhinn McGinnity) and grandmother Lily (Olivia Nash MBE).

Cameo appearances include Carl Frampton, Patrick Kielty, Darren Clarke, Roma Downey, Tommy Bowe, Pamela Ballantine, Pete Snodden, Rebecca McKinney, Marc Mallett, Laura Whitmore and Linzi Lima. Hundreds of extras from across Northern Ireland were also involved in the making of the film.

The film’s main locations were Belfast, including The Europa Hotel, National Football Stadium at Windsor Park and Victoria Square; and the north coast of Northern Ireland, including Golf Links Hotel and Holiday Homes, Barry’s Amusements and The Harbour Bar, Portrush.
