In recent years Hagan Homes has donated £30,000 to Cinemagic International Film and Television Festival for Young People. The charity has a strong worldwide reputation for children and youth programming, delivering educational and outreach actives as well as cross-community projects for children from marginalised communities.

Cinemagic and Hagan Homes also joined forces to apply for Arts and Business Investment Programme funding to further develop the partnership. This was the first Arts and Business Investment Programme between Cinemagic and Hagan Homes and involved the delivery of two short films in two of Hagan Homes outstanding show homes in Belfast and Antrim.

The three-day film training programme offered 24 young people the opportunity to work with industry professionals to learn more about the process of film making whist also gaining skills in time keeping, budgets, leadership, confidence and communication skills.
