30th Galway Film Fleadh

Over the past 30 years, Galway’s local film festival has grown to become an internationally renowned celebration of independent film and the premiere destination for Irish filmmakers to debut their work. In celebration of this milestone, this year’s Film Fleadh will have the biggest line-up of feature films, documentaries, animations and filmmaker talks in years. Popular film programmes including music documentaries, family films, human rights cinema, short films and LGBTQ+ cinema will all return with some of the boldest emerging voices and some Fleadh-favourite directors too.

Tickets to all Galway Film Fleadh events including all screenings at the Pálás Cinema will be sold through the Town Hall Theatre Box.

Advance booking advisable.

Katie 16:00 THT 85 mins BUY
 Katie Thumb The highly anticipated film portrait of champion boxer Katie Taylor as she attempts to rebuild her career after a year of turmoil. Six amateur European championships, five world amateur championships and an Olympic Gold Medal winner from the London 2012 Olympic Games, Katie turned professional after a disastrous campaign at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which saw her crash out in the first round despite being favourite to win. With many writing her off, Taylor decided to start again, and the notoriously private champion agreed to let a small crew document her attempt to rescale the heights. Taylor won her first world title within a year and became the first woman in history to headline her own Sky Sports show. She added the IBF title to her WBA crown and is now one of only seven professional women boxers to hold unified titles across the different weight divisions in the sport.
