Little Cinema @ Galway Film Fleadh 2017

fleadh crowd

Festival season is in full swing in Galway once again, and the Film Fleadh is our favourite part of it. Once again, we were asked to put together a screening which represented the very best of what Little Cinema has to offer over the last year, and the results were incredibly strong. As always, we’re incredibly proud of all the filmmakers who have contributed to Little Cinema and made it one of Ireland’s best events to celebrate film. Huge thanks also go to everyone at Galway Film Fleadh, and congratulations on another amazing festival this year!
