Galway Film Partnership: Galway County Council
The Film Galway Partnership is a group of organisations based in Galway city and county who work together to encourage, market, support and facilitate Film and Television production in Galway. The partnership is facilitated by Galway Film Centre in partnership with Galway County Council.
Through the collective resources of the core organisations the Partnership aims:
- To provide production support through the provision of information and contacts to both indigenous and incoming film and television productions.
- Have a key senior person in each organisation who can help fast-track requests from incoming production companies and help productions overcome any logistical challenges they may encounter.
- To actively promote Galway as a well-resourced location and to organise events and promotions to market the West nationally and internationally.
- To encourage member organisations to offer attractive and competitive rates to incoming productions especially in the areas of accommodation, catering and local transportation.
- To ensure that Galway remains a “film friendly” location and that this is widely acknowledged throughout the industry.
- To develop a Film strategy for the West to ensure that all of the involved agencies have the positive promotion and facilitation of film-making as a core part of their policy.
