Northern Irish filmmaker, savant and pioneer, Mark Cousins has screened all over the world; is a former director of Edinburgh International Film Festival; was recently awarded The Stanley Kubrick Award for The Story of Film: An Odyssey; and had Mogwai write and record an album / live score for his piece, Atomic.
I AM BELFAST
At Where Are We Now? Mark presents and discusses the stunning I Am Belfast (an Official Selection at SXSW, Glasgow, Belfast, London, Adelaide and more) – for which he enlisted cinematographer Christopher Doyle (In The Mood For Love) – “a dreamlike evocation of Belfast, beautifully shot by Christopher Doyle and accompanied by a powerful soundtrack from DJ and film composer David Holmes”.
“A complex and heartfelt evocation of a divided city”
Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies ★★★★
“Cousins’ approach summons a portrait of great colour, complexity and originality”
Kevin Harley, Total Film ★★★★
“A fine achievement” Trevor Johnston, Sight & Sound “Cousins has reclaimed the audience’s gaze to reveal a city with a bright future”
Patrick Gamble, Cine Vue ★★★★
“Mark Cousins is arguably one of the best film essayists of our time.”
Rachel Bowles, The Skinny ★★★★
I Am Belfast will be subtitled and the panel event following the film will be BSL interpreted.

Where Are We Now? will be a summer festival like no other: a gathering of time-served trouble-makers, spoken word rebels, artistic mavericks and leftfield music pioneers. We’ll be converging on the city of Hull to ask of today’s counter-culture the soaring, searching question with which David Bowie kissed us goodbye.
