Galway UNESCO City of Film is delighted to welcome Oscar-nominated Director, Lenny Abrahamson, to Galway on Saturday 12th November. The event is in association with GMIT and the Huston School of Film & Digital Media, with support from the BAI and the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs. Lenny will take part in an interview about his work with Conn Holohan, Acting Director of the Huston School of Film & Digital Media, NUI Galway.


Lenny is one of Ireland’s most prolific directors and has directed some of Ireland’s best loved films including Adam and Paul and Garage. In 2016, Lenny was nominated for an Oscar for Best Director for Room, the film, based on an adaptation of Emma O’Donoghue’s novel of the same name. The film was also nominated for Best Picture with lead actress, Brie Larson, winning the Best Actress Award.


Galway City of Film is proud to welcome Lenny to Galway and we hope you can join us for a filmophile’s afternoon in November.
