Galway Film Fleadh 2015

Posted: June 27, 2015 in Uncategorized

The Galway Film Fleadh returns for its 27th year, on the heels of Galway being designated an official UNESCO City of Film and the Film Fleadh itself being named as one of the 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World. As ever, this year’s programme of films and events has been curated to have something for everyone – locally, nationally and internationally.

The 27th Film Fleadh will open with the World Premiere of My Name is Emily, the debut feature from award-winning shorts director Simon Fitzmaurice. This road movie turned love story, starring Evanna Lynch (better known as Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter franchise) and Michael Smiley (Kill List; A Field in England), was directed entirely through the use of iris-recognition software.

Among the many World, European and Irish Premieres of New Irish Cinema, the Film Fleadh will host a Gala Premiere of the Oscar® nominated Song of the Sea; a sumptuous animation about a little girl who can turn into a seal and goes on an adventure with her brother to save the spirit world and other magical beings like her.

This year’s country-in-focus will be the Netherlands and the Film Fleadh will host a delegation of Dutch filmmakers, bringing to Galway a feast of contemporary Dutch features and documentaries, such as Son of Mine; Prince; Zurich and the Dutch-Irish co-production The Surprise.
