Limited Tickets Remain for Galway Film Fleadh Masterclasses
08 Jul 2019 : News Desk
Galway Film Fleadh
The Galway Film Fleadh have announced the final call for tickets to the 2019 Masterclasses programme.

The Galway Film Fleadh Masterclasses this year feature actor Will Forte and writer/director Gurinder Chadha supported by Screen Skills Ireland, imparting their experience to professionals and trainees in their field as part of the 2019 Galway Film Fleadh (July 9-14, 2019). In addition to the Actors Masterclass, Ros and John Hubbard of Hubbard’s Casting will return to host their hugely popular Casting Workshop in association with Spotlight on Saturday 13th July.

The subject of this year’s Director Masterclass will be Gurinder Chadha, taking place on Friday 12th July. Returning to the Film Fleadh after twenty-five years, when she came to Galway with her first feature, Bhaji on the Beach, Ms. Chadha’s new film Blinded by the Light is a heart-warming and inspirational comedy based on the life of Sarfraz Manzoor, who co-wrote the script, about finding his own voice and his deep fandom for Bruce Springsteen. Hayley Atwell and Rob Brydon support a young, talented, multi-ethnic cast in a film full of energy, enthusiasm and music. Blinded By The Light screens on Thursday July 11th at the Galway Film Fleadh. 

Chadha began her career as a broadcast journalist for BBC News and moved into directing with her first documentary I’m British But….for Channel 4 and the BFI in 1989 and subsequently made several award-winning documentaries for BFI, BBC and Channel 4. Her film, Bend it Like Beckham, was the highest grossing British-financed, British-distributed film ever at the UK box office (at time of release) and topped box office charts internationally. Her other hit films include Bride and PrejudiceAngus Thongs and Perfect Snogging and It’s a Wonderful Afterlife. Gurinder is chair of Bend It Networks – a content creation company which develops multicultural stories for international audiences across Film, TV, Stage & Digital, including Beecham House, an epic drama series set in India in 1795 for ITV and Masterpiece/PBS, premiering in the UK in June 2019.

The much-acclaimed actor Will Forte will deliver the Actors Masterclass on Saturday 13th July. Along with spending eight seasons making audiences laugh on Saturday Night Live, Forte was nominated for a 2016 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and in 2015 he was nominated in 2 Emmy Award categories:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, for his work in Last Man on Earth. Forte’s feature film work includes A Futile and Stupid GestureMacGruber, for which he co-wrote the script, the recent comedy Keanu, Peter Bogdanovich’s She’s Funny That Way and Alexander Payne’s Nebraska. Forte also lent his voice to the hit animated films The LEGO MovieCloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and its sequel, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

Will’s forthcoming film Extra Ordinary, will screen on Saturday 13th July as part of this year’s Galway Film Fleadh programme
