Ireland’s leading film festival, is a six day international film event held every July and welcomes a mad diversity of filmmaking from around the world. The Fleadh is very much a film lovers’ festival, and attracts directors, actors, cinematographers and artists of all generations and cultural backgrounds, who present their work before their peers. Now in it’s 22nd year, the central goal of the Galway Film Fleadh remains unchanged: to bring together audiences and filmmakers within an intimate environment, and share a common experience – the wonder of cinema. The Fleadh’s diverse audience is made up of the general cinema going public, film buffs, student filmmakers, industry professionals and invited guests.
All events for The Galway Film Fleadh 2011are based in Galway city centre and are within walking distance of The House Hotel. The House Hotel is a Friend of The Galway Film Fleadh and will be absorbed in all of the festival activities. As part of the 2011 Galway Film Fleadh, The House Hotel will be host to an Art Exhibition linked to the festival, more details tobe announced here shortly.
