‘Old Friends and Other Days’ wins Best Short Feature at the London International Short Film Festival

Northern Ireland Opera won Best Short Feature and an Audience Award for ‘Old Friends and Other Days at the 2021 London International Short Film Festival. This week the film, produced by Causeway Pictures, has also been awarded ‘Best Musical Film’ at the ONKYO Film Awards.

We’re delighted that our film, created in lockdown earlier this year and showcasing some of Northern Ireland’s finest opera singers, dancers and actors, is being recognised. It has also been officially selected for the Belfast Film Festival, the Prague International Indie Film Festival and was a Nominee at the British Short Film Awards 2021.

‘Think opera isn’t for you? Think again.’ The Belfast Telegraph

‘The result is sumptuous, filmed against the crumbling backdrop of the Carlisle Memorial Church. Also clever, as the setting, props and make-up undercut the Victorian flutiness and sentimentality. It’s intensity with a question mark.’ The Irish News

We are looking forward to sharing the film with wider audiences in 2022.
