Paddy Breathnach’s latest film ‘Man About Dog’ has been chosen to close the 2004 Galway Film Fleadh. This year’s festival programme also includes several promising Irish feature films, shorts and documentaries.

‘Man About Dog’ will be screened on the final day of the festival, July 11th. This is Breathnach's fifth outing in the director's chair and he describes the film as a "rumbunctious and irreverent action comedy with a touch of road movie." A host of cast and crew are expected to attend.

In addition, Lenny Abrahamson, Ciaran O'Connor and Joseph Murphy will all present their first feature films at this year's Fleadh with ‘Adam and Paul,’ ‘Capital Letters’ and ‘Grey’ respectively.

Continuing their commitment to Irish cinema, the Fleadh are hosting a retrospective of the work of some of Ireland's maverick filmmakers.
