Filmmakers from across Ireland will be in Galway to ensure arts festival audiences receive up to the minute previews, news, and exclusive interviews through the online GAFTV.
Some 40 volunteers will be involved with GAFTV this year and their work can be viewed online daily at GAFTV.ie, which will begin with previews from Monday June 27 and run through until July 24.
“This is GAFTV’s third year, a lot of our crews are returning again and we’re getting bigger and better,” said GAFTV director Justin McCarthy. “For over two weeks in July GAFTV will be the biggest online TV production in Ireland!”
John Crumlish, chief executive of arts festival said: “We are very proud of GAFTV which is now an essential part of the festival. I would like to thank our partners and all the people who work on GAFTV and look forward to increasing the viewership this year from the 50,000 people who watched online in 2010.”
All of the input from GAFTV will be available on other platforms such as the Galway Advertiser Facebook page, Galway’s biggest media Facebook presence with almost 7,000 members. To join, go to www.facebook.com/galwayadvertiser
