Galway Film Fleadh opens

MUMBAI: This year?s Galway Film Fleadh that opened last evening will pay a tribute to filmmaker and festival producer Leila Doolan. On the occasion, the Ireland?s leading film festival is also organising a workshop with actress Annette Bebing.

Films to be screened at the festival include eighteen new Irish films and several vintage movies from the Irish Film Archive along with world premieres, international features, documentaries, animation and shorts.

The festival opens with My Brothers that tells the story of three young brothers who set out on a mission in a battered bread van on a Hallowe?en weekend to replace their dying father?s watch.

Bening co-stars with Julianne Moore in The Kids are All Right as a lesbian couple in southern California, one of whose kids wants to meet their "bio-dad".

Among the documentaries that would be screened are The Pipe by Risteard ? D?mhnaill, a portrait of the pressures within a community living with the Corrib gas project in north Mayo, and Burma Soldier, a profile of a former soldier and member of the Burmese junta who becomes a pro-democracy activist.

The tribute to Doolan takes the form of a public interview on 10 July.

Doolan worked in RT?, Ireland?s National Television and Radio Broadcaster in the 60s was first chairwoman of the Irish Film Board and was a key mover in the Burren Action Group that successfully opposed original plans to build an interpretative centre at Mullaghmore, Co Clare.
