Pitching Competition

Sun 10 July / Galmont Hotel – Ballroom 3  / 12:00

Since its inception, the Galway Film Fleadh Pitching Competition has emphasised the fact that good writing is still the backbone of the audio-visual sector and has provided many writers with an opportunity to get their first start in the industry. The 10 finalists will pitch their ideas (90-second elevator pitch) to a panel of industry leaders and decision makers. All are welcome and no ticket is required you can register to attend below, so join us at the exciting final on Sunday.
