The Galway Film Fleadh is to proceed this month, with a mix of outdoor and online screenings over the course of the six day event.

The festival will include eleven world premieres, forty five new works and an extensive short film programme.

Father Burke Park, in the Claddagh area, will be the location for a large outdoor cinema set up.

Organisers say 17 films will be screened on a big screen there, with an audience of 200 socially distanced people listening to the action on wireless headphones.

The outdoor events will include food stalls, music and interviews with filmmakers, writers, directors and actors.

The online aspect of the Fleadh sees the entire programme being streamed, along with industry events, Q&As and film discussions.

The action begins on 20 July, with the Northern Irish psychological thriller 'Here Before' opening proceedings.
