A Christmas Star
An interesting, festive season venture, A Christmas Star is a Northern Ireland feature film which brings thousands of young people together from very different communities throughout Ireland to learn from each other, build community relations, develop practical skills and undergo a very intensive educational training programme that could see them direct access into the film industry and help unlock their creativity.

Garnering a lot of attention is this relatively small scale film, shot entirely on a mobile phone camera. It’s Christmas Eve in Tinseltown and Sin-Dee is back on the block.
