This year’s Galway Film Fleadh also introduced the Stella Artois Pitching Award, valued at 5,000 euro. This event was open to screenwriters to submit a one-page story idea for screen. Projects were pre-selected by a designated panel and the five successful projects pitched publicly today by the individual screenwriters in front of an industry panel and audience. The winner of this year’s award was Keith Brogue from Limerick.

The Fleadh was also delighted this year to announce that the prize fund had increased to €10,500 thanks to the ongoing support of RTE.

The ceremony, which took place in the Townhall Theatre in Galway, preceded the closing film of this year's Fleadh - 'Short Order' - a first feature by the Irish director Anthony Byrne. Actor John Hurt, who plays a lead role, was among those in attendance at the reception.
