Little Cinema at 26th Galway Film Fleadh

We are very proud to announce that Little Cinema is going to be a part of the 26th Annual Galway Film Fleadh that runs 8-13th July. This is the first year Little Cinema is involved and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

There’s going to be a Little Cinema Showcase on Thursday the 10th July at 8pm in Cinemobile followed by a talk about grass-roots film-making.

We would like to pool a selection of films previously submitted to the Little Cinema and create an hour long line-up of films that best represents the spirit of our screenings.

Film-makers that have previously submitted to us – get in touch if you’d like your film to be shown! Just drop us an e-mail at We would ask that the film-maker submitting is able to attend the screening on the 10th July.

The Film Fleadh has a wealth of top notch film-making for you to experience, featuring 18 world premières along with a number of European and Irish premières. The full programme is available here.

Yesterday, the Film Fleadh Launch took place at the Radisson Hotel and it definitely has us buzzing for what’s to come!

You can see the photos from the launch below and also listen to the podcast from the launch by GK Media here.

During the Fleadh, we are also going to be filming a few vox pops, asking people for their most memorable Fleadh moments over the 26 years! If you have a fun story to share make sure to stop by – we’ll be sharing more details over the next while.

Little Cinema – The Room Screening 2014

Thanks everyone who came along last to the Room screening! Mighty craic was had!

Kenny and Liam had great fun introducing the phenomenon to some of our ‘Room Virgins’.

Congrats to Sarah Browne, our best Tommy Wiseau look-alike from last night’s screening! She got three Little Cinema cocktails as a reward!

Which brings me to the next point of interest – The Little Cinema Cocktail! We have our own cocktail – how awesome is that?!

House infused popcorn rum, butterscotch liqueur and coke. It tases like caramel popcorn and it’s dangerously delicious! Thanks ever so much Kelly’s Galway for the gesture!

The cocktail will ONLY be available at our Little Cinema nights, UPSTAIRS in Kelly’s, for €5. We had it last night and it’s bloody amazing! Sample it next Tuesday at our January screening!


Julia, Kenny and Liam
