Northern Ireland Opera
's film, Old Friends and Other Days, has been selected for the Belfast Film Festival and it will premiere  at the Strand Arts Centre in Belfast on 10 November. The film was created during lockdown last year, with Renewal and Stability funding from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. 

Directed by Cameron Menzies, the company's artistic director, Old Friends and Other Days takes songs by Irish composer William Wallace and his contemporary William Balfe, performed by Carolyn Dobbin, Mary McCabe, Emma Morwood, and Sinéad O’Kelly, with a cast which includes dancers and actors from across Northern Ireland. The result is a 45-minutes combination of song, cinema and storytelling.
