The 28th Galway Film Fleadh, taking place July 5-10, has announced programme details for 2016 which features 15 world premieres as well as a public interview with six time Academy Award nominee and IFTA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Jim Sheridan.

With a reputation as an international launch-pad for the best in new Irish films, this year’s programme features a number of particularly strong debut features from directors, such as Richie Smyth’s ‘The Siege of Jadotville’, which sees Jamie Dornan as Irish Commandant Pat Quinlan as he leads his Irish Battalion in a tense stand-off against local troops and French and Belgian Mercenaries in the Congo in 1961.

The screening will take place on July 9th, 2016 which you also buy tickets for!
