The Shore

The Shore

Oscar winning Belfast man Terry George and his film maker daughter Oorlagh took to the Belfast Hills to film scenes for his critically acclaimed 2012 short film The Shore.


It was from the spectacular heights of Divis and Black Mountain that the film shot many scenes for the story that also showcases the coastal beauty of Coney Island and Killough in Co Down.


Ciaran Hinds, also from Belfast (pictured right with Mr George on Divis and Black Mountain) stars in the heartwarming tale of reconciliation between old friends in Northern Ireland. Scenes were shot on Divis Mountain on a seated prop with the famous cranes of Harland and Wolff visible in the distance.


National Trust Divis warden Dermot McCann took part in organising the crew for stunning scenes of Divis and Black Mountain looking out to Belfast.


Local man Terry was twice previously nominated for an Academy Award for his screenplays for In the Name of the Father and Hotel Rwanda.
