A pre-selected group of producers with feature films, documentary and animation projects will have the opportunity to meet with representatives of these companies.

The Galway Film Fair, in association with Bankside Films, are once again delighted to announce a €3,000 award for the best project at this year’s Marketplace. The award is voted on by the attending marketplace industry professionals. Bankside is a leading international sales and film finance company for independent films.

“The Fleadh has become an important international co-production hub. That is one reason why Galway’s co-production market, the Film Fair, has become such a key networking event”
– Screen International

“I attend the Fleadh regularly because I’m always finding a new filmmaker, project or producer that shows real promise to deliver on the international stage. It’s an extraordinarily useful, efficient platform to help identify what’s coming down the road and it’s a bridge for us to the greater European film community, especially those talents who have yet to be recognised.”
– Eamonn Bowles, Magnify Pictures
