The Fleadh is an Oscar-Qualifying festival for Shorts (Animation & Drama). It also platforms excellence in filmmaking with retrospectives, public interviews, tributes and masterclasses from some of the world’s best filmmaking talent (John C. Reilly, Ruth Negga, Zachary Quinto, Saoirse Ronan, Fionnula Flanagan, Josh Olson, Brenda Fricker, Will Forte, Martin Sheen, Stephen Daldry, Michael Fassbender, Ronald Harwood, Anjelica Huston, Christopher Hampton, Peter O'Toole, Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Robert Towne, Paul Schrader, Mira Nair, Patricia Clarkson, Abbas Kiarostami, Paolo Taviani and many more).
Alongside the festival, the Fair – Ireland’s only film market, co-ordinates pre-scheduled meetings between filmmakers and invited Film Financiers, Distributors and Major Producers, allowing new talent to be discovered and long term partnerships to be made.
The Galway Film Fleadh accepts dramatic, documentary and animated feature films. Screening at an earlier film festival will not preclude selection, although priority will be given to Irish, European and World Premieres. The audience selects awards for Best International First Feature, Best International Feature and Best International Feature Documentary, Best Irish First Feature, Best Irish Feature, Best Irish Feature Documentary while awards for Human Rights Cinema and The Bingham Ray New Talent Award are awarded by a jury of industry professionals.
