2019 Pitching Competition final

Sunday July 14th | Galmont Hotel | 12p.m. – 2p.m.


Since its inception, the Galway Film Fleadh Pitching Competition has emphasised the fact that good writing is still the backbone of the audio-visual sector and has provided many writers with an opportunity to get their first start in the industry. The 10 finalists will pitch their ideas (90-second elevator pitch) to a panel of industry leaders and decision makers.

This year, we host the competition in association with 101 Film International and are pleased to announce the finalists are: 

  • Hellfire Mark Dollard
  • Lorcan Johnny Schumann
  • The Dip Paul Webster
  • The Future Perfect Mark Hennigan
  • The Niemba Ambush Gary White
  • The Silver Monkey Barry Ryan
  • Mark Kelly
  • Beyond The Pale Susannah Hunt
  • Groenland Samuel Steele
  • What Would Rocky Do? Roisin Jones

All are welcome and no ticket is required, so join us at the exciting final on Sunday 14 July.

The winner will receive a €3,000 cash award, sponsored by 101 Films International, at the Awards Ceremony on Sunday evening.
