Galway Film Society - Summer Flicks!

Dear Galway Film Society Supporter,

We are thrilled with the positive response we are receiving to our GFS SUMMER FLICKS initiative. This was introduced to ensure that GFS members would be able to continue to attend GFS screenings but on a more casual, ad hoc basis to accommodate the comings and goings of the summer silly season!

Just to reiterate, GFS SUMMER FLICKS is a continuation of GFS screenings, throughout the summer, in GFS's usual 8pm Sunday night and 6.30pm Monday evening slots at Pálás. To enjoy discounted GFS SUMMER FLICKS, there is no requirement to purchase a season ticket or membership.

GFS patrons will be able to avail of the reduced price ticket for GFS SUMMER FLICKS' individual screenings (€8 as opposed to €12). Please be advised that these tickets can only be bought in person at the box office at Pálás. However, if you wish to reserve seats, you can ring the box office in advance (091 394800) to request that seats be held in your name and paid for on arrival.

GFS will continue to send out newsletters to keep you updated about our GFS SUMMER FLICKS programme and indeed other GFS initiatives, including our collaboration with the Japanese Film Festival, BANFF Mountain Festival and possibly others over the course of the summer period.

Our next GFS SUMMER FLICKS film screening will be FULL TIME, screening on June 05 and 05.

Single mother Julie works a gruelling job as a head chambermaid in a five-star Parisian hotel. Julie's daily balance of commuting from her remote suburb into Paris, tenuous childcare and search for a new job to get her out of debt, becomes unmanageable during a paralysing transport strike in Paris. Literally running from dawn to sunset to get to her job and back home in time to fetch her children, Julie is constantly on the verge of a breakdown. When she finally gets a job interview for a position more suited to her skill set, Julie has to walk a very tightrope between keeping her current job, and sneaking out while calling on co-workers to cover for her as more obstacles pile up in front of her.

GFS would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
You are welcome to contact us at any time at
In the interim, enjoy all the wonderful films!
