Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetari

Apart from 'Odd Man Out' in 1947, I remember 'Jacqueline; 1957 with John Gregson as an out of work
shipyard worker.

Northern Ireland is currently the location of choice for many movie-makers, thanks to its tax relief incentives, funding, scenic backdrops and talented crews.

In recent years a number of major films and television dramas have been shot in Northern Ireland, bringing big name stars like Tim Robbins, Bill Murray, Tom Hanks, Pete Postlethwaite, Sir Richard Attenborough, Heather Graham, Shirley MacLaine, Liam Neeson, James Nesbitt, Sir Ben Kingsley and Saoirse Ronan to the province.

Several of the feature films and dramas shot here have gone on to win awards, including Steve McQueen’s Hunger and Five Minutes of Heaven, which showed on BBC2 earlier this week.

Movies which have have been filmed here recently include:

Small Island

Cherrybomb

Hunger

Shelter

Fifty Dead Men Walking

Pumpgirl

City of Ember

Closing The Ring

Kings

Buy, Borrow, Steal

Freak Dogs

I once saw a wee film called "Wing Nut" or was it a wee Drama???  Anyway it was about a young Boy and Girl one from each side of the Community and to cut a long story Short.

He gets her Pregnant and it is all about the Fueding of the two Families with these two Kids in the Middle.

Brilliant !!!!!!!!!!!!

there was a film named "shamus" with parts of it filmed in belfast,  it was about a little boy from an orphanage who ran away, he caught a leprechaun and got his pot of gold,  he then grew a tail. i remember the film being made in clonard area,  i watched part of it being filmed in leoville, oranmore st entry where seamus is being chased by a crowd of children and knocks over a rag man with his cart, i finally got the film from a clonard fella named butler, he got me a dvd of it, and i am in the film where i remember watching, i am about 7 years old and have a big giant bow in my hair, i only appear for a minute, but my grandaughter tells everyone her granny is a film star. the film was made about  1954. does anyone remember his film.?  all the kids doing the chase were from clonard,
