The Galway Film Fleadh has revealed more big names for its 2020 edition by launching its ‘In Conversation’ series, which features Keith Carradine, Joe Dante and Nicole Holofcener.

Despite the cancellation of the physical festival due to the coronavirus, the Galway Film Fleadh has tried to keep as much to its traditional format as possible and a huge part of this will be engaging masterclasses, presented as ‘In conversation’ events.

Chair of the Galway Film Fleadh board and leading Irish actress Kate O’Toole talks to Hollywood legend Keith Carradine about his acting career and the many people he has worked within the industry. Part of the Carradine dynasty of actors, the multi-talented Keith Carradine was born in California in 1949. He has starred in over seventy feature films including Thieves Like Us, Nashville, Welcome to LA, Pretty Baby, and The Duellists. More recently, he has appeared in Aint Them Bodies Saints, Cowboys and Aliens, and A Quiet Passion. Carradine also wrote and sang “I’m Easy”, for the film, Nashville, which won an Academy Award for best original song. He has just finished production on Jane Campion’s new film, The Power of the Dog.

The Galway Film Fleadh has also announced that celebrated genre director Joe Dante will be in conversation with Aislinn Clarke, an award-winning writer, director, and lecturer from Northern Ireland. During their conservation, they will deconstruct films from their trailers, discuss political allegories in genre cinema, and Joe Dante's childhood influences including the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The remaining event in this trio of industry names announced by the Fleadh is writer and director Nicole Holofcener. Independent filmmaker Nicole will be in conversation with Mary Kate O’Flanagan (award-winning writer and story consultant working in the film and television industry). They will talk about making character-driven films in a market that wants high-octane franchises, attracting top-flight casts to low-budget films, making a fictional world seem real and Oscar's success with Can You Ever Forgive Me?  This session will be packed with insights into the process and craft of storytelling on screen and is a must-see for any screenwriter or director.

All sessions are free but must be booked in advance via the Galway Film Fleadh website (www.galwayfilmfleadh.com). The ‘In Conversation’ series is happening on Saturday 11th of July at noon & 2 pm and Sunday 12th of July at 2 pm.
