Watching films at the Fleadh will still be a communal experience

Fleadh Programmer Will Fitzgerald on putting together this year's festival and the films coming our way from July 7 to 12

IT WILL be a Galway Film Fleadh like no other in the festival’s 32 year history. There will be no screenings at the Town Hall Theatre, no after parties in Woodquay, no spotting that film star walking down Shop Street.

And yet, there will be a Galway Film Fleadh 2020 streaming into every home in Galway that wants to take part, because the Fleadh is a resilient festival, and by its very nature, perfectly suited to adapt to the restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus Lockdown.

The Galway Film Fleadh 2020 will this year be a completely digital, online only festival. All selected films will be available to rent from and will be viewable across multiple devices, from Tuesday July 7 to Sunday 12.
