Embarr Films was created by myself, Ethan Barr, as somewhere to share film views with local film lovers.
It all began in the early days of 2013 with a Twitter account. I used that account to post my film views and often tweeted little film reviews confined to those 140-character bubbles. We have since expanded and now also have a Facebook page where we're also happy for you to get in touch and share your thoughts!
I built this website myself from scratch in summer 2013 just to give Embarr Films a bigger web presence. Make sure to check out our Reviews and Views pages before you go and don't hesitate to get in touch!
We are based in Northern Ireland but more specifically, Derry in the North-West.
If you're on a mobile device just find the browser option 'Add to Homescreen', if you're uncertain, follow these instructions for Android and iOS.
