Galway Film Fleadh was awarded €46,750 for the Galway Film Fair under the Market Access scheme.

”We’re delighted with this strong start to Ireland’s participation in the new Creative Europe Programme. Along with our colleagues in the MEDIA Office Galway and the Culture Office, we look forward to working with many more Irish audiovisual and cultural organisations so they too can benefit from this invaluable fund”, said Orla Clancy of the Creative Europe Desk Ireland – MEDIA Office.

The Creative Europe Programme (2014-2020) is the EU support fund for the audiovisual and cultural sectors totaling €1.46 billion which replaces the previous Culture and MEDIA programmes. The MEDIA sub-programme supports the ability of the EU’s film and audiovisual industries to develop, distribute and promote their work across all platforms within Europe.

The date of the next Single Project Funding deadline will be announced in September. The MEDIA Offices in both Dublin and Galway are available for consultation on any queries regarding the MEDIA Sub-programme of the Creative Europe Programme.
