One Minute Film Festival | New deadline Tuesday 19th June at 4pm (GMT)

We’ve added a short extension to the One Minute Film Festival deadline!

Galway City of Film in partnership with Galway Film Centre and the Galway Film Fleadh are delighted to announce that the One Minute Film Festival is back for this year’s Fleadh!

We are inviting Filmmakers / Film Enthusiasts to make a one-minute HD film, based on any subject or any story. The best 30 x 1 minute films will be selected by a panel of judges and they will be screened at a special public event at the Galway Film Fleadh.

This year, there are cash prizes of up to €250 for the best 3 Films. The winning films will be available to watch on the websites of all organisations involved following the Festival and this is an opportunity to have your work screened to an audience at an international festival.

Entry to this competition is free and all genres are welcome including documentary, live action, art-house and animation!
