The Galway Film Fleadh has been named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of its “50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee.” Galway was one of only six European festivals to make the list for filmmakers and creatives.
The Film Fleadh has previously been spotlighted by Moviemaker Magazine as one of its “25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World” in 2014.
The magazine highlighted our script pitching competition, the social aspect of Galway where “evenings at the Festival Club create opportunities to network and to connect with audience members” as well as the festival’s critical engagement through podcasts and video interviews with its filmmakers, and panel discussions and Q&As. Entry for this competition will open in the next two weeks.
While Galway’s feature film submissions are closed for 2019, short film submissions will remain open until Friday May 17th at 5pm.
Filmmakers with projects in development, or a completed film/documentary, can also submit up to 2 projects to the festival’s Marketplace, which takes place as part of the Galway Film Fair (our industry section), which has a regular deadline of Friday May 31st at 5p.m.
