The Marketplace

at Galway Film Fair


The Marketplace at the Galway Film Fair will take place on the 8th & 9th of July in Galway. We’re excited to be able to have in-person meetings again this year for the first time since the pandemic started.

The Marketplace at the Galway Film Fair takes place during the Galway Film Fleadh (festival) 5th– 10th July 2022 and 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 films/documentary projects will have the opportunity to meet with representatives of these companies.

The Galway Film Fair’s 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

 Alongside the Marketplace many other industry events take place at the Galway Film Fair including conferences, seminars, masterclasses, debates, workshops and much more.

To participate in the Marketplace at the Galway Film Fair, applicants must have either a project in development or a completed film/TV series/ animation or documentary. Applicants should note that priority will be given to projects which have a percentage of development and/or production finance in place.

“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, Magnolia Pictures
