Galway Film Society winter season at Pálás this week

With cinema standing ovations still ringing in their ears following their autumn offering, Galway Film Society’s winter season begins this week.

Beginning Sunday, 5 November, GFS will present six films, showcasing a wealth of award-winning titles from around the world.

The season begins with a heart-warming, coming-of-age French drama Time To Get Away!, presented with support from the French Embassy in Ireland, and Institut Français.

The GFS Winter programme celebrates the fantastic diversity of European film with a number of highlights, including the highly-anticipated French drama Anatomy of a Fall, winner of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival 2023. See also the uplifting Parisien tour movie, Driving Madeleine.

From Spain, it is the Berlin Film Festival 2023 Best Performance winner 20,000 Species of Bees.

GFS will also continue its support of emerging film-makers by screening two short films during its Winter season, providing an important platform for emerging Irish talent.

The season will finish with special Christmas screenings of the Ukrainian movie Carol of the Bells, to be accompanied by customary festive cheer.

Galway will also be one of the Irish locations participating in this year’s Month of European Film alongside sites in dozens of cities from Reykjavik to Athens and Lisbon to Bucharest.

GFS Sunday films screen at 8pm, and GFS Monday films screen at 6.30pm.
