The Marketplace

We are delaying the opening of applications for the marketplace at this year's Film Fair until the timeline for the Covid-19 pandemic becomes clearer. Watch this space.

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

A unique opportunity to meet with the world’s leading financiers in an intimate and informal atmosphere, allowing new talent to be discovered and long term partnerships to be made.

The Marketplace co-ordinates pre-scheduled meetings between filmmakers with projects in development (priority will be given to projects which have a finished screenplay available and a percentage of development and/or production finance in place) and/or completed films and invited Film Financiers, Distributors, Sales Agents, Broadcasters, Film Funds and Major Producers.The Galway Film Fair’s unique selling points:

  • Transatlantic bridge between the American and European markets
  • Intimate and informal atmosphere
  • Privileged access to the world’s leading financiers
  • Showcasing new European and International cinema to leading Film Buyers, Distributors and Festival Programmers

Further to organising meetings between decision makers and content producers, the Marketplace also facilitates the networking of producers amongst each other.

 

We are proud to announce the Best Marketplace Project Award, in association with Bankside Films, will be presented to the project judged best in the Marketplace. The winner will be awarded a €3000 cash prize at our award ceremony on Sunday July 12th.
