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
- X 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.
