Galway Film Centre at the Galway Film Fleadh 2020

GFC at Fleadh 2020

Ionad Scannán na Gaillimhe/the Galway Film Centre (GFC) are delighted to be back with a presence at the 32nd Galway Film Fleadh this year. From the premiere screening of The Winter Lake, supported by the WRAP Fund, to the Fleadh Forum and our One Minute Film Festival, we are very busy once again with our Fleadh participation.


The Winter Lake

WRAP Fund backed Irish feature film The Winter Lake, directed by first time feature director Phil Sheerin will have its World Premiere at the virtual, online Galway Film Fleadh at 9pm on Friday July 10th.

A dark and atmospheric coming-of-age drama, The Winter Lake was shot in Sligo in 2019. The cast is led by two ‘Screen Stars of Tomorrow’ for 2019; Emma Mackey (Sex Education, Eiffel, Death on the Nile), and Anson Boon (Blackbird, 1917). They are joined by Irish stars Charlie Murphy (Peaky Blinders, Halo) and Michael McElhatton (Game of Thrones, Chernobyl).

The online screening will be followed by a special Q&A with the cast and crew. Tickets are available HERE.

One Minute Film Festival

Galway Film Centre in partnership with Galway City of Film and the Galway Film Fleadh is excited to again bring the One Minute Film Festival to this year’s Fleadh. 20 one-minute films have been selected from both experienced and first-time filmmakers with all genres covered, including comedy, drama, documentary, art-house and animation. These super-short films pack a punch, proving that a really great story can be told in just 60 seconds! The winning films will receive a combined prize pool of €250. The programme will be available to rent online for FREE for the duration of the Fleadh from the Fleadh website and we will announce the three winners on Sunday July 12th on our social media. You can find the full programme available for rent HERE.
