Galway looks to Europe
You’ll find the latest Irish productions, a retrospective on Eamon De Buitlear and much more besides on the programme of the Film Fleadh, being held in Galway from July 8 to 13. There’ll be premieres of the films Headrush by Shimmy Marcus and The Honeymooners by Karl Golden and there’ll be the chance to celebrate Liz Gill and her Goldfish Memory. The festival will be focussing on German cinema, with the presentation of many recent titles, also including the film by the director of Irish descent, Eoin Moore ( Pigs Will Fly), which was made between Berlin and San Francisco.
Then there are the films from Northern Europe (The Sea [+see also:

The festival will also be welcoming a great lady from European cinema, Agnieszka Holland, who will be taking the 'Directors Masterclass'. The course is open to everyone but there are only 25 places available. The closing date for applications to attend the workshop has been fixed for June 27. For more information: Felim Mac Dermott
