What Is the Little Cinema
Little Cinema is a monthly short film showcase that’s been running on a voluntary basis since 2010 in Galway city! It was set up by three film-maker friends who sought a platform for film-makers of all levels to network and to grow and see their films on the big screen.
It gives all film-makers from the West of Ireland and beyond the opportunity to showcase their films to a warm encouraging audience in a relaxed setting. The only two rules are that the film is under 10 minutes and the film-maker introduces their piece on the stage, or in times of Covid via Zoom with us on a Live Stream. Films, documentaries, music videos and comedy sketches are all welcome! During our Live Streaming phase we are prioritizing films made during Lockdown, but are also open to showing films made prior to that if space permits. We welcome submissions from all film-makers and actively encourage submissions from those under-represented in the screen sector.
With screenings in the Roisin Dubh pub every last Wednesday of the month, it’s also a fun night out for all film lovers or filmmakers looking to network. Over the years, the Little Cinema has also special screenings for Halloween, Christmas, Seachtain na Gaeilge and have collaborated with the Galway Comedy Carnival and Galway Theatre Festival for screenings.
