27 Jan 2022 : News Desk
34th Galway Film Fleadh
The short film submissions are now open for the 2022 Galway Film Fleadh.

With three Oscar® qualifying categories, the Film Fleadh’s advocacy for emerging film talent is reflected in its annual programme of approximately 100 short films from all over the world, including drama and documentary, live action and animation, and everything in-between.  

As an Oscar® qualifying festival, the winners of the Tiernan McBride Award for Best Fiction Short, the James Horgan Award for Best Animation Short and the TG4 Award for Best Documentary Short 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 Cinematography in a Short Film. Winners through the years include Lenny Abrahamson, Kirsten Sheridan, Ken Wardrop, Rebecca Daly, as well as DOP’s Michael Lavelle, James Mather, Tim Fleming and many more.  

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

After two years of adaptation to new and different formats to safely stage the Fleadh for filmmakers and audiences – streaming films online in 2020 and then staging an outdoor festival in 2021 – the Fleadh is planning for a return to the festival’s classic cinematic experience in July 2022 and 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 Earlybird Submission fee is €25, and the deadline is 5pm, March 14th

The Regular Submission fee is €30, and the deadline is 5pm, April 25th

There will be a late deadline of 5pm on Monday May 9th and the late submission fee will be €35.  

The regular deadline for feature film entries on February 18th is fast approaching.  

The Galway Film Fleadh is a six day international film event in the West of Ireland. Featuring Ireland’s only film & TV marketplace, and an annual industry conference called the Fleadh Forum, Galway welcomes audiences & filmmakers from around the world to the edge of Europe each July. The Galway Film Fleadh is funded by the Arts Council.
