Most movie fans will already know that 2015 marks the 30th anniversary of the much-loved, classic time-travel comedy Back to the Future starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown. There has already been a bunch of celebratory screenings of the movie throughout the year and another one has just been announced.
Taking place at the Odyssey Cinemas, Titanic Quarter in Belfast, Northern Ireland, this special screening will also play host to legendary composer Alan Silvestri, who will be taking part in a live Q&A before the screening begins. The Q&A will be hosted by local radio personality and voice-over artist Tim Burden.
This event – which takes place on October 27th at 7pm – is being presented by Cinemagic, an annual international film and television festival aimed at helping young people become involved in the industry. It marks the very first time Alan Silvestri has ever visited Ireland. He will be discussing the highlights of his career in film including how he came up with such iconic themes found in Back to the Future, Forrest Gump and The Avengers to name but a few.
As part of the festival, Silvestri will also host a Music Composition Workshop at the Belfast Metropolitan College Millfield the following day featuring exclusive clips and exercises which display how to deliver an effective music score for a movie.
Alan Silvestri is regarded as one of Hollywood’s finest film score composers having previously been nominated for an Academy Award on two occasions for Forrest Gump and The Polar Express. His career has spanned over 40 years.
Tickets to the Q&A/screening will cost £10 and are available to purchase now from the Cinemagic Box Office or Odyssey Cinemas.
