The Galway Film Society Spring 2017 Season runs from January to April, and sees ten films screened at the Town Hall Theatre on Sundays at 8pm, opening with OSCAR and Golden Globes nominated Finnish film, The Fencer, on Sunday 22nd January.

“In the early 1950s, Finnish champion fencer Endel Nelis, takes up a teaching position in a remote Estonian School. Initially standoffish and unwilling to engage, he eventually warms to the traumatised children of the school, many of whom have been left orphaned by WWII or the Soviet occupation. Realising the children need an outlet for hope and self expression he decides to teach them how to fence and in doing so becomes their father figure.”
