Galway Film Fleadh

Town Hall Theatre

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

It’s that time of year again, and we are excited to once more showcase Galway as the beating heart of cinema in Ireland.

For one week in the summer the entire Irish film industry descends on our “Cannes on the Corrib”, alongside filmmakers, talent, financiers and more from every corner of the world. They share ideas, collaborate and watch films in the uniquely welcoming, intimate and informal atmosphere that only a Galway festival experience could provide. More important, however, are our audiences which come from Galway, all over Ireland, and from almost every point of the globe, to see the best in new Irish and world cinema. With a packed programme featuring more than 150 films from more than 30 countries around the world, including 16 world premieres, they will not be disappointed.

We are thrilled to welcome some very special guests to the Fleadh this year, including legendary Irish director Jim Sheridan, actress Ruth Negga (who will be the subject of our actors’ masterclass), and screenwriter Kirsten Smith (10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde) who will host our screenwriting masterclass. There are many more filmmakers and film talent attending, though perhaps most exciting is the increased number of female-directed films and female filmmakers we present as part of our focus on Women in Film.

Programme highlights include a focus on Finnish cinema, featuring work that covers everything from cave-diving and cheerleading, to Sweden’s 17th century “queer Queen Kristina and her lady love” and desperate World War II romances. We also have a full menu of films looking at food and drink; a showcase of the best cinema made in, by and about Galway; a complete set-list of the best music documentaries from around the world, and of course the best in short film, and new Irish and world Cinema.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Arts Council of Ireland and all of our Board, venues, sponsors, financiers, friends, and everyone else we have come to think of as part of our ‘Fleadhmily’ for helping us deliver this programme.

We are backing the bid. Let’s make Galway the European Capital of Culture!
