Galway Film Fleadh Opens Short Film Submissions for 31st Edition
01 Feb 2019 : News Desk
The Galway Film Fleadh is now accepting short film submissions for its 31STedition, taking place from 9th– 14thJuly, 2019.

As a platform of discovery, the Film Fleadh’s advocacy for emerging film talent is buttressed by its robust short film programme and, over the years, has spring-boarded many Irish careers and projects. As of last year, the festival has broken with its tradition of screening only Irish-made shorts and now invites international short filmmakers to join their Irish peers at an Oscar® qualifying festival that celebrates the art of short filmmaking. 

Each year the Film Fleadh programmes nearly 100 Irish short films, across six days, including drama and documentary, live action and animation, and everything in-between.Galway is an Oscar® qualifying festival; winners of the James Horgan award for Best Irish Animation and the Tiernan McBride Award for Best Irish Short Drama will qualify for Academy Award consideration without the standard theatrical run. Galway also rewards first time directors in drama and animation, as well as the Donal Gilligan Award for Best Cinematography in a short film. Winners through the years include Lenny Abrahamson, Kirsten Sheridan, Ken Wardrop, Rebecca Daly, as well as DOP’s Kate McCullough, Tim Fleming, and many more. 

In addition to screenings, the festival also delivers panels and networking events tailored towards short filmmakers, providing opportunities to meet with international and industry guests. 

A number of the Galway Film Fleadh’s 2017 and 2018 selected shorts qualified for the 91stAcademy Awards, taking place on February 24th, including ‘A Drowning Man’ (Denmark, UK, Greece), ‘My Dead Dad's Porno Tapes’ (USA), 2018 Tiernan McBride Award winning film, ‘The Wren Boys’ (UK), 2018 James Horgan Award winning film, ‘The Wiremen’, and 2018 Best International Animation winner, ‘The Driver was Red’ (USA). Two Irish short films ‘Detainment’ and the 2017 Best Animated Sequence winner, ‘Late Afternoon’ went on to be nominated for Best Live Action Short Film and Best Animated Short Film, respectively. 

The Galway Film Fleadh is a six day international film event in the West of Ireland, comprising a film festival, film conference and Ireland’s only film marketplace. Each July, Galway welcomes a mad diversity of filmmaking from all around the world, to the very edge of Europe. The Galway Film Fleadh is funded by the Arts Council. 

Galway’s short film submissions are now open across all categories. The Film Fleadh accepts all types and genre of short film under 40 minutes, as well as picture-locked rough cuts.

The deadline for short film submission is Friday May 17th at 5pm and the entry fee is €20.
