The Junior Galway Film Fleadh is back with a new edition celebrating the Future of Film – you! Featuring World Cinema, Documentaries, Curriculum and Irish language programming, filmmaking workshops, a Story Pitching Competition and much more, the JGFF seeks to empower young people with a passion for cinema.
Like our big sister, the Galway Film Fleadh, the Junior Galway Film Fleadh is a festival for discovering new talent and we’re proud to showcase some of the best in Irish and World as well as showcasing the work of some of Ireland’s most talented young filmmakers in our Future Filmmakers section.
Each edition of the festival is curated in consultation with a Youth Council, comprised of film fans of different ages, schools and backgrounds, to ensure that the many workshops and screenings that take place during the festival are relevant and of interest to the young cinephiles taking part.
These young people, our audiences and our filmmakers represent the future of Irish filmmaking so please join us for four days that celebrate the Future of Film.
