Galway Film Fleadh 2020 programme launched

Festival to run as an online event from July 7 to 12

FOR THE first time in its 32 year history, the Galway Film Fleadh will not take place in cinemas, but will take place entirely online - a response to the strange and extraordinary times we live in.

The 2020 Galway Film Fleadh will run from July 7 to 12 with 10 world premieres, 40 new features, and 10 new short film programmes. The opening night film will be The 8th, a documentary on how Ireland overturned one of the world’s most restrictive abortion laws. Directed by Aideen Kane, Lucy Kennedy, and Maeve Boyle, it focuses on some key pro-choice campaigners and how they enabled the emergence of a more liberal Irish society.
