Applications are now being accepted for the Marketplace at the 2016 Galway Film Fair, taking place during the Galway Film Fleadh (7th – 9th July 2016).

The Marketplace at the Galway Film Fair co-ordinates pre-scheduled meetings between filmmakers with projects in development and/or completed films and invited Film Financiers, Distributors, Sales Agents, Broadcasters, Film Funds and Major Producers.

A pre-selected group of producers with feature film/documentary projects will have the opportunity to meet with representatives of these companies. A project book will be available for all decision makers and in case of completed films viewing facilities will be available.

The Galway Film Fair has a number of unique selling points:

  • Transatlantic Bridge
  • Intimate and informal atmosphere
  • Privileged access to the world’s leading financiers
  • Showcasing new European and International cinema to leading Film Buyers, Distributors and Festival Programmers.
