This six day event attracts directors, actors, cinematographers and artists to Galway, as well as a huge number of film fans. It has always aimed to bring those who make and work on film together with their audience in a very friendly and boundary free way, and it succeeds.

The programme is very broadly based, with strands devoted to, among others, World Cinema, Irish Cinema, documentary, animations and shorts.

The Junior Film Fleadh, a festival within a festival, has long been a fixture at Galway, and features work made by young people for young people, alongside an extensive programme of workshops, screenings and competitions.

There is an extensive programme for those working in the film industry, including masterclasses in for actors, directors and screenwriters, film fair where filmmakers and financiers meet in an intimate setting and a story pitching competition.

If you are in Ireland at this time and have even a remote interest in film, Galway is definitely the place to be.

Date and details for 2021 subject to confirmation.
