Mazars continue sponsorship of the 31st Galway Film Fleadh

Mazars was delighted to support for the ninth consecutive year the Galway Film Fleadh. The Fleadh took place from Tuesday 9th to Sunday 14th, July 2019 and showed an exciting array of premieres including Never Grow Old and a double bill A Bread Factory, Part One and A Bread Factory, Part Two.

Galway Film Fleadh is a world-renowned platform showcasing the very best Irish and international cinema. For 31 years this festival has hosted the cream of Irish and international cinema, features and documentaries from around the world to Galway.

This year the Fleadh was honoured to present the final film from French New Wave pioneer, Agnès Varda . As a special tribute to the legendary filmmaker who passed away earlier this year.

Speaking about the sponsorship, Paul Mee, Tax Partner, Mazars Galway said, “The recent international success of locally produced titles and the increased development and investment in homegrown talent are just some of the reasons Ireland’s film industry continues to flourish. The soon to be released “Girl From Mogadishu ” and its focus on Ifrah Ahmed’s campaign against FGM is a prime example of what the Irish film industry can achieve globally.

As one of the leading advisors to the Irish film and entertainment sector, Mazars is proud to continue its sponsorship of the 31st Galway Film Fleadh, the Opening Film 'SING ME BACK HOME' at the Town Hall Theatre on the 9th July and the ‘Best First Short Drama’ award at the Awards ceremony on the final night.”

Mee continues, “The Irish Film Tax Credit system was changed significantly with effect from 1 January 2019 to enhance the development of the industry. To highlight how the changes impact on film and TV productions in Ireland, Mazars hosted a presentation, in conjunction with the Galway Film Fleadh, on ‘Understanding the changes to section 481: Ireland’s Film Tax Credit’.
