The Galway African Film Festival was set up in 2008 to showcase the very best in African Cinema. It is the result of ongoing collaboration between the Galway One World Centre, Galway Film Society and the Huston School of Film & Digital Media.

The Galway One World Centre (GOWC) is an education centre working towards raising awareness and changing attitudes of people in Ireland regarding global development and justice issues.

The Galway Film Society (GFS) is one of Irelands longest running film societies. Since its beginnings in Galway in late 1960’s, the Society now organises approximately forty film screenings per year most of which habitually receive capacity attendances of up to 350 people.

The Huston School of Film & Digital Media was established in 2003 under the active patronage of the Huston family. The School offers a pioneering suite of courses with a single starting point, the role of cultural creativity. They combine the academic and the vocational, theory and practice in professional courses that focus on “culture as central not residual”.
