THE LITTLE CINEMA GALWAY
If you are looking for a unique and enjoyable way to spend an evening in Galway, you might want to check out the Little Cinema Galway. This is a monthly event that showcases the best short films made by local and national filmmakers, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
The Little Cinema Galway was founded in 2010 by three film enthusiasts who wanted to create a platform for filmmakers of all levels to share their work and get feedback from the audience. The only rules are that the film has to be under 10 minutes long and that the filmmaker has to introduce it on stage. The films can be of any genre, style or format, as long as they are original and entertaining. You can expect to see anything from comedy sketches and music videos to documentaries and dramas.
The Little Cinema Galway takes place on the last Wednesday of every month at the Roisin Dubh pub, a popular venue for live music and comedy in the city. The doors open at 9pm and the screening starts at 9:30pm. The event is usually sold out, so it is advisable to book your tickets in advance. The screening lasts for about an hour and a half, followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers and a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses. The audience is encouraged to vote for their favourite film of the night, which will receive a special award.
The Little Cinema Galway is not only a great opportunity to watch some amazing short films, but also to meet other film lovers and filmmakers in the city. You can network with people who share your passion for cinema, get inspired by their creativity and maybe even collaborate on future projects. The Little Cinema Galway also organizes special events throughout the year, such as the 48 Hour Challenge, where teams have to make a 5-minute film in just two days, or the Halloween and Christmas screenings, where films have to fit a certain theme.
If you are interested in submitting your film to the Little Cinema Galway, you can do so through their website or email. They accept submissions from anyone, regardless of their experience or background. They also welcome films in Irish or other languages, as long as they have English subtitles. The deadline for submissions is usually two weeks before the screening date.
The Little Cinema Galway is one of the most fun and exciting events in the city’s cultural calendar. It showcases the talent and diversity of the Irish film scene, while providing a platform for emerging filmmakers to express themselves and reach new audiences. Whether you are a filmmaker or a film fan, you will surely enjoy this night of cinema magic.
