Nominees for the 2018 Bingham Ray New Talent Award Announced
03 Jul 2018 : Nathan Griffin
The Galway Film Fleadh has released the names of the five nominees for the 2018 Bingham Ray New Talent Award. This year’s nominees have been shortlisted for their work in the fields of Directing, Acting and Producing.

The Bingham Ray New Talent Award is supported in association with Magnolia Pictures.

Independent film executive Bingham Ray, whose career spanned across October films, United Artists and Sidney Kimmel, was a regular attendee to the Galway Film Fleadh annually. His affinity with the festival was said to have been solidified by the passion, drive and independent spirit that was shown towards film by those working, and in turn became the Fleadh’s greatest stalwart.

Bingham supported the festival by committing vast amounts of time to the mentoring of filmmakers over the years at the Fleadh. His efforts, actively instilled confidence in aspiring filmmakers through listening, encouragement, advice, and belief.

The Irish film community benefited hugely from Bingham’s wealth of knowledge across the complete spectrum of the film industry and the many friendships that he made along the way is a testament to his generosity in sharing his experience.  

The inaugural Bingham Ray New Talent Award was given to Gerard Barrett by Bingham’s daughters, Annabel and Becca, for ‘Pilgrim Hill’, which went on to worldwide success.
