This year’s gathering of Irish and International film industry at the 2016 Galway Film Fleadh only confirmed what we knew – that Irish talent for film making, writing and acting is entering a kind of swell of success. This year Irish films received 2 Academy Awards and 7 nominations, 1 Golden Globe and 6 nominations, as well as 1 Jury Prize in Cannes and 7 selections in Sundance. So the abundance of talent in this year’s Galway Film Fleadh was no surprise.
I am so pleased to say that many of our former students, colleagues, and clients are among the participants and winners in this year’s Galway Film Fleadh! Please have a peek at a few of our former students and clients below:
Additionally, there are the hugely successful contributing actors, directors, and producers such as John Connors, Fionn Ó Loingsigh, Lynn Rafferty, Charlo Johnson,Tristan Heanue, Brendan Sheehan, Ciarán Dooley, and Ciarán McNamara.
In particular, I am honored to say that there were two films that I worked on as a Directing Actors for Film Specialist Consultant , the film “Goodbye, Darling” directed by Elena Doyle and the award winning “Groundless” directed by Eimear Callaghan.
A huge congratulations to all of you mad and talented people!
