Galway UNESCO City of Film is delighted to congratulate Asif Kapadia for winning the 88th Academy Awards OSCAR for ‘Best Documentary Feature’ for his film ‘AMY’ on Sunday evening in Los Angeles.

Galway Film Centre was delighted to host Asif in Galway in January this year as part of the Galway Film Centre’s annual Seminar ‘Talking Documentary’. Filmmaker Pat Collins interviewed Asif and discussed at length his experiences as a documentary filmmaker. Asif talked poignantly about his time in making ‘AMY’, his documentary on singer Amy Winehouse, and the need to celebrate her short life.
