Call for entries for 2015 Galway Film Fleadh
06 Feb 2015 : Seán Brosnan
Galway has also just been bestowed the status of a UNESCO City of Film
The Galway Film Fleadh is now accepting feature submissions for the 2015 edition of the festival, which will run from 7th - 12th July.

The Galway Film Fleadh accepts Feature films, Documentary and Animation. Screening at an earlier film festival will not preclude selection, although priority will be given to Irish, European and World Premieres. The audience selects awards for Best International First Feature, Best International Feature and Best International Feature Documentary, Best Irish First Feature, Best Irish Feature, Best Irish Feature Documentary while awards for Human Rights Cinema and The Bingham Ray New Talent Award are awarded by a Jury of Industry Professionals.

In 2014, the Film Fleadh screened 18 World Premieres as well as many European and Irish Premieres, many of which have gone on to secure distribution or be picked up for further international outings. Films screened at the Fleadh frequently follow on to Toronto, Berlin, Sundance, Tribeca, Venice and London.

Galway was also designated as a UNESCO City of Film in 2014, becoming one of one of only five cities in the world to receive this status.

The Fleadh is an Oscar-Qualifying festival for Shorts (Animation and Drama). It also platforms excellence in filmmaking with retrospectives, public interviews, tributes and masterclasses from some of the world’s best filmmaking talent (Zachary Quinto, Saoirse Ronan, Fionnula Flanagan, Josh Olson, Brenda Fricker, Will Forte, Martin Sheen, Stephen Daldry, Michael Fassbender, Ronald Harwood, Anjelica Huston, Christopher Hampton, Peter O'Toole, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Robert Towne, Paul Schrader, Mira Nair, Patricia Clarkson, Abbas Kiarostami, Paolo Taviani and many more).

Alongside the festival, the Fair – Ireland’s only film market, co-ordinates pre-scheduled meetings between filmmakers and invited Film Financiers, Distributors and Major Producers, allowing new talent to be discovered and long term partnerships to be made.

The earlybird deadline for feature entries is Friday 27th February at 5pm. The entry fee is €30. The regular deadline is Friday 27th March at 5pm, the fee for which is €40.
