Galway Film Society Spring 2024

Galway Film Society is excited to announce the lineup for its Spring 2024 season, which kicks off this January. 2024 is a very special year for Galway Film Society, as it marks the society’s 60th anniversary.

On Sunday / Monday 21st & 22nd January, GFS looks forward to welcoming back its loyal audience to Pálás for the first of its Spring 2024 season of international arthouse film screenings. The new season includes many prominent titles, beginning with the award-winning French romantic comedy-drama Diary of a Fleeting Affair.

Other films screening this season include Tótem, Mexican director Lila Aviles’ highly-anticipated follow-up to the hugely successful The Chambermaid. Foodies won’t want to miss the exquisite The Taste of Things, a culinary and romantic delight starring Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel. Irish directors Garry Keane and Stephen Gerard Kelly, meanwhile, follow-up their acclaimed 2019 documentary Gaza with the extraordinary In The Shadow of Beirut - Ireland’s submission to the 2024 Oscars.

In February/March, GFS will team up with the Dublin International Film Festival (DIFF) to allow Galway audiences experience some of this year’s DIFF programme as part of the DIFF Tour. This includes two highlights from DIFF’s feature line-up - the genre-bending Nigerian fable Mami Wata and heart-warming French film Toni

GFS screens at 8.00pm on Sundays and 6.30pm on Mondays.

GFS subsidised season tickets costing €60 for 8 films (€7.50 each) can be purchased at the box office at Pálás until February 12th whilst individual films tickets can also be purchased from Pálás.

More details can be found on the Galway Film Society website or on the GFS social media channels.
