Following the guidance issued by the Government of Ireland on 12 March in relation to new measures to contain Covid-19, Galway Film Centre and Galway 2020 made the decision to postpone this event.

While we are extremely disappointed to have made these decisions, public health is our number one priority and we must follow Government advice.


During 2020, 16 young filmmakers selected from Ireland and across Europe will come together for two weeks in an intensive camp to create a virtual production short film.

Virtual production is where the physical and digital worlds meet, combining live action with VFX and game-engine technologies to enable production crews to see their scenes as they are composed and captured on set.

The short film will be based on stories of Galway and brought to life using Unreal Engine (the brains behind Fortnite).

Facilitated by expert filmmakers from the Screen Talent Europe network, the workshop aims to allow for the exchange of knowledge and networking between filmmakers from across Europe. The film will be screened later in the year. For further updates, go to
