Filming for Belfast took place across London and Belfast between September and October last year amid the coronavirus pandemic, and it's been reported that more than half of the scenes in the film take place outdoors as a result.

The film has been described as "semi-autobiographical "and tells the story of a working-class family and their young son's childhood during the tumult of the late 1960s in Northern Ireland's capital.

"We are so grateful for this little soul… that he chose us as his parents. I'm in awe of him already and can't help stare and wonder at all the possibilities of who he will become, where he will go and what he'll do on the big adventure of his life."
