The Fleadh Forum

24th Galway Film Fair Thursday 9th - Sunday 12th July 2020

The Fleadh Forum is a one day industry seminar, occurring annually as a key component of the Film Fair.

It is a platform to explore and share ideas about what is happening in the audiovisual industry, creating an opportunity for filmmakers to come together and exchange news and views. The Fleadh Forum brings together three key Creative Europe Programmes: ACE, EAVE and Screen Leaders along with being supported by  Screen Skills Ireland.

This event will give producers an opportunity to further enhance their knowledge of the film industry in general and shed a welcome light on other potential European and International companies and agencies.

Each annual seminar is broken up into 3 or 4 sessions that take place throughout the day of the event. Attendance to the event is free, but guests are required to R.S.V.P. More details on how to attend will be provided in June of each year, 3 weeks prior to the event.
