Galway 2020

As part of Screen Talks, Pálás is preseting an ongoing series of talks with the best of Irish filmmaking talent as part of Galway 2020 and in association with Screen Ireland.  

Project Baa Baa is a unique programme celebrating the cultural, economic and environmental contribution of sheep in Ireland and Europe. Through Project Baa Baa we aim to involve children and fans of animation (and those with a fascination for sheep!) in Ireland’s agricultural heritage. It runs for three weeks beginning from Saturday 17 October. Starting with the loveable Shaun the Sheep film, followed by Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon on Saturday 24 October.

On Thursday 22 we will screen the documentary, Addicted to Sheep, about one family’s effort to breed the perfect sheep, produced by Magali Pettier and Jan Cawood of Provenance Films, with reception beforehand, at 6pm to launch the European Congress.

An additional film short , Irish wool fashion documentary by filmmaker, Perry Ogden, will be shown on Saturday 29 October as support to the WOOL Showcase event at Galway Museum.
