The Galway Film Fleadh have confirmed Saoirse Ronan as a guest of honour and the subject of this year's 'Public Interview' in the Town Hall Theatre on Sunday, 14th July. From her Oscar nominated performance in Atonement, to an exquisite portrayal of a naive and deadly assassin in Hanna and her youth-defying turn as a centuries-old vampire in the current Byzantium, Saoirse is a home-grown talent whom Hollywood royalty are clamouring to work with. Saoirse will join a host of filmmakers and film lovers as Ireland’s leading film festival, the Galway Film Fleadh, celebrates its 25th anniversary.
The six day 2013 international film event takes place from Tuesday 9th July until Sunday 14th July and promises to be an unmissable event in the Irish social and film industry calendar. This year’s fleadh will continue to premiere the newest and the best in Irish cinema, including Life’s a Breeze, the new film from director Lance Daly (Kisses) and starring Pat Shortt and Fionnula Flanagan, already confirmed as part of the programme.
