Galway City of Film’s is celebrating it’s 2nd Anniversary!
“On Dec 1st, 2014 UNESCO Director-General, Ms Irina Bokova announced that Galway has been designated a UNESCO City Of Film. Under the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, Galway is now one of only eight cities in the world to achieve this much sought-after status. Galway joins Sydney; Australia, Rome; Italy, Santos; Brazil, Bitola; Macedonia, Busan; South Korea, Sofia; Bulgaria and Galway’s twin city of Bradford in the UK as a designated City of Film. This is a permanent global designation. This status brings the highest internationally recognised standard of excellence in the creative industries to Galway. The title of Creative City of Film also includes membership of UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network.”
To celebrate this the Galway Film Society, Ireland’s longest running film club, has kindly given 2 tickets to this Sundays screening of SWEET BEAN in the Townhall Theatre. The screening is at 8pm Sunday 4th December and Mr. Yuichi Yamada, Cultural Affaires Officer from the Japanese Embassy in Dublin, will introduce the film. Galway’s WA Cafe will provide some samples of Japanese food prior to screening.
