United Wine Merchants bring a Taste of Italy to Belfast Film Festival

United Wine Merchants has announced that Italian brand Birra Moretti is to be the official drink of the 2018 Belfast Film Festival.

Now in its 18th year the Festival is well established in the local calendar and has a well deserved reputation amongst the public for bringing a wide range of film, documentaries and shorts to a host of locations throughout the city.

Birra Moretti is an Italian lager beer which dates back to 1859 and is the only Italian brand to have been awarded both gold and silver medals at the World Beer Cup, the most important international competition in the industry.

Emma Haughian, Brand Manager at United Wine Merchants commented, “We are delighted to be sponsoring the dynamic and diverse programme of events that make up this year’s Belfast Film Festival. Birra Moretti is a quality beer which is the result of a production process that has remained almost unchanged since 1859. It’s positioning as a cosmopolitan beer enjoyed by male and female consumers make it the perfect partner for the Festival. We are looking forward to the opening night of the film festival and to welcoming guests to experience international film with an international brand.”

The Belfast Film Festival is set to open on Thursday 12th April and will run in locations across the city until Saturday 21st April. To find out more or to book your tickets visit www.belfastfilmfestival.org
