The deadline for submitting feature films for the 25th Galway Film Fleadh has been announced and entry forms are now available online. The deadline for Feature Submissions is Friday 22nd of March.
The Galway Film Fleadh which will take place from 9th – 14th July later this year is looking for feature length films including documentary, animation, experimental and feature films.
The Fleadh gives priority to world and Irish premieres. Any film that has been previously broadcast on television in Ireland or screened at another festival shall have less priority in programming terms than those that may premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh.The competitive categories for feature films are Best Irish Feature Documentary, Best Irish Feature, Best Irish First Feature, Best International First Feature, Best International Feature and Best International Feature Documentary. All winning categories are judged by the audience and/or a jury.
In addition to the above categories there is a supplementary award, THE BINGHAM RAY NEW TALENT AWARD, which recognises the best new talent presented at the Fleadh and can be awarded for directing, writing, acting or any field in the discipline of filmmaking.
